Spiral Galaxy

Somewhere in a galaxy not far from here.......

In this work galah feathers and tiny stitches recreate the mesmerising beauty of a spiral galaxy.

The centre of the galaxy is defined with a pink dyed area overlaid with running stitches.  Stem stitch delineates the "arms" of the galaxy with detail formed by tiny seed stitches, slightly longer random stitches, galah feathers and french knots.

The ground fabric is a very fine dupioni silk dyed with Landscapes dyes.  The threads, as always, hand dyed silk.
