Jesus Birthday Fabric Banner

Image may contain: indoor
I've had this Quilted Art banner in the thought process
for quite some time.
Since I mostly decorate with blue at Christmas,
the stars in various blues with black ultra Suede
letting works great for my space.

Rust Dying Fabric | Orange....Me?

Image may contain: food
Day 317 #ayearinstitches 
A fiber artist friend challenged our group to rust dye 
a remnant from the mill her relatives ran many years ago.
 I gathered tomato paste and cans and lids 
and put my piece outside, 
prayed with vinegar and waited for the elements to create design. 
Several days later I looked and the fabric was 
under a layer
 of red clay silt from recent rains and very orange.
 After several washings,
 it's ready for embroidery layered on batik fabrics. 
2 strands teal Running Stitch and Cross Stitch.

came to me a few days ago. 
"Joy" is getting more detail.

"Hope" #ayearinstitches Continues

No automatic alt text available.
A recent camping adventure afforded many hours in the car which
equals many opportunities to hand stitch.
I'm not sure "Hope" is complete.  I still plan to put the word
"hope" on it to the left, I think.
Composed of deep purple twill background, green/yellow shibori fabric I created 
at Surface Design group, under a fabric I hand painted light purple some time ago.
The female silhouette incorporates Running, Chain,
 Ladder, Daisy, Y, Cross, Buttonhole & Colonial Knot Stitches. 
You can follow along daily on my Facebook page.

Female Silhouette Heart Art Stitching Challenges

No automatic alt text available.
Day 270 #ayearinstitches 
Stitching on this blue batik heart so it remains visible 
and yet allows the yellow silhouette 
to keep the focus is a bit challenging. 
Today, I added Cross Stitch (left), Chain Stitch (right) 
and a Straight Stitch Circle (center). 
Suggestions?
