Transfuse and Transplant



I have been brave and created two hand embroidered pieces for an exhibition in my village. The theme of 'Renewal and Regeneration' was set. My pieces are entitled Transfuse (obviously linked to blood transfusion) and Transplant (based on bone marrow). They each measure approx 8x6cm and are mounted on silk covered canvas board. I would have had them box framed but didn't have time. They are made using 5 layers of dyed fabric and cut back using the reverse applique method. Some of the tiny areas were a real challenge! Anyway I was very pleased and surprised to be given a commendation for Transfuse. Hope you like them.
