The painting on the two panels is now pretty much complete, they just have to be heat-set with the iron and then I can begin the embroidered sections. Not sure how well the silk organdy will hold tight embroidery stitches – going to be another learning curve there, I'm sure (for all of these reasons). And a field trip up to the Garment District might be in order for more embroidery floss too.
