Machine embroidery

I went to the Wellington Quilt Syposium in 2009 and went to a class with Sandra Meech. She inspired me to create this piece. I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet, but I think I will frame it.
It is made with white cotton homespun fabric on both sides, which is sandwiched with cotton felt. I painted the fabric with acrylic paint and painted some tyvek in the same paint colours. I then machine embroidered the fabric heavily and this is the final piece. If you want to see some of Sandra's amazing work, check out her website
