*30 IN 30* Day 13

This week I want to show double *love* for my sweetie - on Valentine's Day and his birthday. Will take this as my direction for the next three days.

First, still working with the stitching I did on sheer black silk. Looks marvelous in person, sheer and touchable. Am working out how to manipulate the edges, attach it, yet enhance the sheer quality.

Fiber has one aspect that I always struggle against: it looks soft and malleable, until sewn down.  Then it goes stiff and static. A constant question: how to keep the 'hand' alive?

Paper, ink, reclaimed fabric, sheer silk, free-motion stitching.
