Holy Chilies

A small wall hanging (about 8" x 8")

I scanned my photo of "Chimayo Holy Chilies" onto cloth, then sewed it to a gold background.  Free motion stitching with metallic threads, vintage lace, rickrack, old jewelery, hand rolled paper beads, old buttons with bead dangles.  Click on photo for a larger view.

Thank you, Kath. I was pleased with how it turned out. My things are very loosely planned....never really know how they will turn out...just keep adding things until I think it's "done".

Actually, I made this for my daughter, so it has been sent to Denver, Colorado.

The hanger I found at a nearby fabric shop...it is hard to find interestng "hangers", but this shop carries the small wire ones most of the time.
