Rust dyed fabric update

Last month a group of us did some rust dyeing. See my previous posts on the subject:

I stamped some motifs onto the fabric with ink, then overlaid with gold acrylic paint, and have been slowly adding stitching. I did some more stitching today while waiting for the background of my large acrylic painting homework to dry.

I am using silk threads in a variety of weights. I love the way the stitching is making this design come alive.
