It's finished! Here is how my piece on rust dyed cotton came out!
This piece is based on a map of Kent, my home county. I was on my way home from a ship contract and was watching the movie Country Strong on the plane. One song, Coming Home, really resonated with me and I wanted to use one line from the song in a piece. Here it is...
This piece just reminds me where my home is while I travel wide and far. Kent will always be where I come back to eventually. I used stranded embroidery thread for the main outlines and then used perle cotton for the text and marker as I wanted it to stand out more and look like someone had written on the piece with a marker.
This is exactly how the piece looked in my head, I'm pretty happy with it! What do you think?
