Completed "A Perfect Day"
















I couched some fishing netting and beaded some beach treasures to finish up "A Perfect Day." That's the title of the music sheet I included in the piece. I'm happy with it now!
My Jacksonville fiber group, FAN, is donating a collaborative piece to the Humane Society and we're doing fish! These are two of mine which may or may not make the final piece. I had a great time creating! The jelly fish is a dyed silk cap which I placed between 2 layers of soluble plastic and machine embroidered, then added the various fibers before partially washing out the soluble stuff. The fish is a stuffed odd shaped pillow like body, wrapped with gold thread and beads. The wire was couched on at the end. Fun, is all I can say!

The 'A Perfect Day pieces are just stunning. It looks like you had fun with the monoprinting too.
