This category along with the Historic category speak to my relationship with different cultures and past styles and how I interpret these designs in embroidery. Fretwork and keys are an obsession.
Included in these examples are pieces I designed to enhance the beautiful and luxurious Alpaca fabric from Sandra Jordan. I was first introduced to this marvelous surface by Interior Designer Mary Douglas Drysdale when I produced my "Moroccan" Border for the Richmond Symphony Design House some years ago. It has since been a favorite foundation for my threadwork.
