They're beautiful Lilla. On the center one did you dye your laces and motifs? They're wonderful.Sharon

aloha,
I did dye all the laces on the projects, some gauze too. Every stitch on these is by hand, my hands do get sore. Ouch!
I love to play with color and dyeing works for me. I also use tea and coffee and acrylic paint diluted like in the Pacific bags in the latest Haute Handbags.

I've been working hard on my embroidery for the last 5 years and it is artists like you who inspired me to keep learning and experimenting. When I see your work, I see all the possibilities of beauty. Thanks you for sharing your gift!
