Autumn Silhouette

Seeds, pods, and earthy vegetation. The skeletal beauty of Autumn. This is a fascinating time to explore gardens and meadows. There is a collage-like patchwork of fabrics stitched together with free-motion machine embroidery. The silhouettes are also free-motion machine embroidery.

SOLD 8" x 10" 17" x 21" framed www.chursinoff.com/kirsten I just recently purchased the book "Seedheads in the Garden"…
