"Speed" - a commission for a living room wall - July 2010


We chose the fabric colours to match the room's plush fawn couch, with accents of deep brown in the curtains and cerise in the cushions; the subject came from a chance reading "then I remembered something close to her heart....." 

Fabric piecing, painted Lutrador layers and some hand stitching.  The large dog is machine embroidered as a slip.
