IWinter Jay started this piece while housesitting in the mountains for nine days in December. “Winter Jay” is my latest Twilt. An Arm & Hammer Soda Card from 1916 was scanned and printed on cotton fabric and used as the focal point in the embroidery.
Winter Jay DetailLinen fabrics, cotton organdy and lace were stitched together before the embroidery was added. Silk Ribbon leaves, embellishments and beads rounded out the central motif. The embroidery was then mounted on the batik with silk, chiffon and satin ribbons.
