Take it Further (Take Two)

The other night, I pulled purple and green from my fabric stash and sewed a few strips together.

Originally, I was thinking of fading light on windows, but once the strips were sewn together, it seemed more watery. I reminded me of deep woods and hidden fairy lakes. I'm adding strips of the lighter colours and am thinking of possibly embroidery ferns or applique...

I have some amazing varigated thread in my collection and access to a wonderful store that carries everything from cotton to silk thread (many hand dyed). Will have to let the piece speak to me and see what it says now.
