Mallard in Flight 1984 by Speattle
Home & Decoration
This was a complicated piece. Every single tiny and large piece in this was cut out by me and carefully placed and layered in a given order and satin stitched down.. It took quite a while to make. There are some velvets in this for texture and other fabrics too. We have this displayed in our house still.
I know exactly when the photo was taken. In the larger picture I am very pregnant and the only time I had short hair like that was when I was pregnant with my daughter (threader "Siffstitch'). So it was definitely in the fall of 1984.
