It is finally done. Begun in March of this year with a simple drawing of the sunflower and goldfinch, it really didn't start to take off until I found the goldfinch fabric to place in the corners. It finished off at 17 1/2" x 21 1/4" and is made primarily of cotton but with silk, beads, sequins and buttons. Stitching is done both by machine and by hand. It's formally named, 'Feathers of Gold'.
