Eyes First

 Stitching on a self-portrait piece.
No my eyes are not actually peacock blue (neither is my face for that matter!)
I used a not very closed-up zig-zag, because I didn't want the weight and height of a satin stitch to outline the shapes.
 This piece has been in the works from a short class at CQFA a while ago about doing self-portraits using fabric with prints or colors to help represent things about yourself. Describing one's insides instead of just portraying the outside.
I had it all glue-sticked and pinned together for more than a year.
I brought it over to China with me, and finally stitched the pieces down. The rest of the quilting is yet to be done though.
