Kaylene Maalste – Happy – Earth, Sky and Water
For me happiness is an environment that is free of pollution creating clean air, water and fertile earth. Materials I used are hand dyed silk and cotton. I was inspired by a design I saw in Gilda Baron’s book “The Art of Embroidered Flowers”. The field of flowers are small discs of yellow fabric caught down by a cross stitch in the center. Other suggestions of vegetation are hand embroidered with two to three strands of embroidery thread and the birds are fly stitch.
