Surprised By Hope


I finished my big commission - and Ken and Janet loved it...
so do I!

After lots of pondering, I decided to add a golden ring behind the two circles. Probably the most difficult possible construction - but the design was what I wanted.

almost finished

I am almost finished with this amazing and wonderful piece!

photo above is all sewn together - all 3 feet by 5 feet of it. Setting circles into the background was a challenge!
The piecing will be mounted over a stretched canvas, to hang like a painting.

I still want to add one more design element - debating between either a ring or another circle.

(the ring would be stripped fabric - not white)
