Textile art piece, "Happy Together"

I am allowed to submit two pieces for the Ferry Building Gallery Show, so I have finished my piece that I dyed with cochineal.
I have titled it "Happy Together".
Front and back are a soft and dense wool melton, dyed a soft red with cochineal. My left hand, my husband's right hand, from my own drawing. Hand fabric dyed with maple leaves. Embroidery and beading make it beautiful. Bound in gold silk.
