"Strength & Honor"

Strength & Honor | Proverbs Women | Modern Art Wall Quilt
It's finished.  This has been such a fun project.
Stitching and posting about it daily as part of the #ayearinstitches
has been such a good discipline for me.  
"Strength & Honor" is 100% hand created beginning with 
artist's surface design of female models, hand embroidery and hand quilting. 
"Strength & Honor" is 2nd in a series.
The center section resembles the world a bit and reminds that women are women worldwide. 
Each female figure is unique representing various moods, personalities and stages in life.
Yet, there is victory and even though days may be challenging, 
"Strength & Honor" helps keep perspective.
Measuring approximately 22 inches X 20 inches it is ready to hang.

Day 140 #AyearInStitches - Black & White Flowers

No automatic alt text available.
I admit - I began the #ayearinstitches January 1st with much enthusiasm 
which has waned from time to time.
 And yet, overall, the discipline of hand stitching and
 posting daily has been good for me in life's great and not so great days. 
Today I completed Flower #2 using black Pearle cotton Buttonhole Stitch.

After adding hand painted circles and squiggles,
 I hand embroidered the green hand painted fabric to the collage using

Freedom Girls -#ayearinstitches

No automatic alt text available.
Using my remaining Surface Design girls etc.
I'm created a new collage.
This Girl of the collage is on hand painted fabric using the 
paint top as a stencil and then.
2 strands purple DMC Chain Stitch outline highlight her shape.
This composition tastes of playing with paper dolls
 which I have not much experience. 
Stitch seems much more fun.
