Crazy quilt "Prairie" #3, hand embroidery added...

Hand embroidery added, stem stitch, bullion, french knots, coral, etc.

Embroidery over linen, close up.

This section of embroidery took me a while. I like the effect of the pearl cotton thread. Next I'll get out the buttons, beads and laces and begin the interviewing, layering process.
 I have been following a mixed-media artist, Gabrielle Pollacco. She is a brilliant embellisher and sure knows her way around color. I get so inspired seeing her amazing work. Art is art regardless of the media.
