a hand made towel

taking a step backwards from the coral -- this is where it began, really, or where the coral facination stemmed from. (i actually finished these a few weeks ago -- just now posting...) this style of embroidery (which, again, i am not finished with my exploration of) is called "redwork." i first saw it a few years ago at the Folk Art Museum here in NYC, on quilts. It made an impression on me and I have just now gotten around to playing with it.

i really love the red embroidery floss on a white material.


***my camera is taking really fuzzy pictures! or i am always taking my photos after i've had too much coffee...
