Modern Wall Hanging

My son is a modern young man .... you  know sleek leather couches no fru fru modern art etc. so  I am experimenting with a modern art
wall hanging.

I have taken multiple pictures ....  none very good.  Its hard to photograph black and shiny.  I am still working on the background.

A few close ups

Today I will  put my chop on the bottom and finish the black beading background.

Welcome to Day Four of the 
Superpower Blog Hop .

I did not know when I took tambour hook classes that it was going to be an addition.   It has become my passion, my addition and I consider it my  SUPERPOWER!!!
 This is a doodle experimenting with different shades and kinds of metallic machine embroidery threads and sequins.

Rows of chain stitches and rivers of sequins.

Rows of beads and sequins for the background on my "Ravel" quilt 
 This is a class piece from Lesage. The tambour hook was used to do the gold work.  I wanted to show  the use of  DMC floss.   The flowers in lavender , and the dark and medium pink use 6 strands of DMC.  The light pink and dark purple is raffia, and the leaves are chenille.

  This is the piece I am currently working on.  I am making this wall hanging for my son who is a modern kind of kid.  Sorry to say it is still in progress.  The weather today was rainy and not a good day to take pictures.
