“Sacred Life” series. A little hand stitched wall hanging. I used very old silk and scraps of rayon and cotton. The bigger blue leaf is a vintage velvet creation that I’ve saved for years. I used a pretty blue and copper raku bead at the bottom and a little twig at the top. I embroidered the tree names in gaelic and english. 2011.
