Renewed

  Renewed.........I shared my process for this here.  



  I was slightly stumped when shopping the stash for a border fabric, as nothing seemed to work.  I really wanted to enhance that vibrant blue in the watercolor section on the right.  I finally found this blue-green piece in my "landscape" stash of fabrics.  I like the way the pieced area blends and flows into it.



  A good close up for those of you who asked about the fabric selection.  It takes a large collection/selection for this one.  
  The dragon fly has 3 colors for the body, and 7 colors in the wings.  But that is another story....

 Renewed----reworked, turned, and added to.    I think I will hang this in the sewing room to enjoy for a while.

Happy stitching.

It's hard to put into words what I think about this beautiful wall hanging. You found the perfect fabric to frame this gorgeous piece of artwork. The swirls in the border give it a good finished flow.

That border is perfect! Oh, I love that dragon fly. We've seen a lot of them here this summer and they are always a welcome sight.
