I decided to go through my stash and find different shades/prints of red. I wanted more of a solid feel but with slight texture. So the various little patterns give that textured feel. This is the start of something I am creating for a gift. : )
I cut out the squares very random with no thought of perfection. I quickly stitched them on the machine and I will begin adding some hand stitching.
A new found book that I plan on reading. Frida has always fascinated me. She took her tragedy and made it into art. She was complex and simple. She struggled with life, as we all do. I think that is why I am drawn to her....
note: the movie version with Selma Hayek was really well done.
This book looked intriguing...I'll let you know once I read it.
