"Kilim"

Starting point: a picture in a magazine - it feels like it came from the desert -...and some fabric and threads --
Intensive stitching:
But the scrap of green isn't quite yellowy enoughand maybe a web of orange rayon threads will give the silky look I was aiming for (but had no scraps of silk on hand) -
Judge for yourself --

Absolutely gorgeous piece. I really like the way the rayon blends that section in more. Maybe if all of those had rayon across?

An improvement on the inspirational piece, I think. Very tasty!

It's gorgeous. The threads across the green are very successful in my opinion.
