In this original, one-of-a-kind hand-embroidered work of fiber art -- just as in my black ink pen illustrations in the City Series -- I have hand-sewn a city of blue buildings and houses against a white cotton fabric background. The constellation, which is held together by large navy dots and lines, keeps the city together. The hoop is 7" - this was hand-sewn created without a guide or pattern, so the lines aren't perfect. These imperfections give the piece character, charm, and that truly one-of-a-kind feel. :) This particular piece took over 7 hours to sew.
