Wall Art for Earth Day Auction

I sent this off today for the Earth Day Auction which Joanna is organising. It is free motion embroidery on netting, which has little treasures trapped inside the grids. It was sewn on dissolvable film to achieve the embroidered edges. I covered the wire hangings with felt wrapped with organza and then zapped with the heat gun.

What a neat piece! I need to stop looking at blogs that have such cool ideas, because I just don't have time to go play right now!

Diane, It's so nice! I love the hanger treatment but the piece is just so well thought out! I really like the"empty" circles at the bottom and the edge treatment is perfect.

wow Dianne, this looks great! I wasn't able to look on your blog (on none of my favourite blogs) because I wasn't much at home the past days, this evening I needed some new energy and I decided to visited your blog. At this moment it's 10 pm, so to late to start something new, but you really inspired me! Great! Can't wait till tomorrow.
