This wall hanging belongs to Trina. Trina and I met when we both lived in Flin Flon, she now lives in Kentucky, but made this at a class when she was living in Austria! The pattern is called Celtic Illusions by Karen Combs.
I was able to catch these photos in the last few moments of sunlight yesterday afternoon. Trina and I decided on some non traditional feathers with bubbles in the plumes to play off the bubbles in the background fabric. I changed up the spine a little bit in the outer border just to keep things interesting.
In the end I opted to only stitch in the ditch around the brown. This pattern goes together in a neat way, but the width of the brown pieces is not consistent - you don't see this when looking at the knot but I didn't want to spoil the illusion.
I am fairly pleased with the results of my snow dyeing. I was expecting a little different result from the black, and I thought some of the pink would have been more prominent, but I think I can work with it. When I was picking my colors and adding the dye I was thinking stormy sky and blooming canola fields.
