Mending on silk gauze


Oh, how true is this! Stitch it to remind yourself, or a stitching friend, of why you stitch.

This is a simple design, stitched with just four colors of hand dyed floss. The addition of teeny little Rhodes stitches adds texture and the bottom silhouette of the design has no background fill, so you get a bit of a 3-D tasseled effect.
