"this owl worked on burlap in fishbone, satin and weaving stitches shows how the technique may be adapted to design on a bold scale."
here's another incredible piece by erica wilson who you might remember from my "creative stitchers" posts last month. i am totally knocked out by the red, hot pink and brown color combo on natural burlap. and please take note the date on this one, well ahead of the big wave in popularity that owls had in the later 60s and into the 70s.
