bogong moths quilt stage 2 - cocoons

getting closer - i made some beads from green japanese silk paper and painted them with sepia - voila - cocoons!

i couldn't find any images on google of bogong moth cocoons so i used some poetic licence....

the piece is now sewn onto a japanese silk paper background. stage 3 will be more hand sewing and i think some more washing with sepia or walnut ink and then something sturdy to support it. this is one piece that i think might need framing of some sort

well - on with the motley, as my Mother says. chicken caesar for dinner....
