I choose to see this little hiccup as a win-win for me. I'll have TWO pieces exhibited at one time or another in three fabulous venues!
Phases of the Moon was inspired by the background fabric which is one-half of a piece of hand painted fabric that I bought from Hollis Chatelaine many years ago. The moons are a hand dyed piece of fabric which is overlaid with tulle for shadowing. I free-motion stitched the tree and then built the owl separately and appliqued it on last. The piece is hand quilted and beads were added to suggest stars.
