    Asian Inspired Ladies

    This was done as a wall hanging. I love the Asian panels you can get out there. I love this pattern, as you can take a fairly good size piece of fabric, and show case it like a picture in a frame. I top stitched around the ladies in the picture, then I drilled holes in chop sticks and mounted them - top and bottom. Then I added machine embroidered chinese symbols in two squares. Thanks for looking.Name:  DSCN0783.JPG

    That is a lovely wallhanging. I love the Asian fabrics too - such gorgeous prints and colors! You did a really nice job on this one. I especially like the chopsticks - a fun touch!

    That is so creative. The addition of the chopsticks just finishes it to something extrordinary.

    Beautiful setting and fabrics and the chopsticks and embroidery finish it off with such originality.

    Chinese writing was machine embroidered. Hubby blessed me with a Viking, so I can have fun embellishing my work.
