Moths in the Moonlight

Fabric covered and embroidered box

and basket lid.

The design is based on an exploded circle, moths silhouetted against the moon. The background fabric of the basket lid is the same as the fabric used to cover the box. The base design of both is red, yellow and white felt applique embellished with net and hand stitching, and on the box glass beads. The moths are cut out of black and silver fabric and fused on. Some are outlined with couched gold thread. Both lids are fastened with matching buttons.

Here are the close-ups:

These are absolutely stunning... I love the way the ever-widening rings of stitches and fabric take your eye outward. WOW!
