Right Side With Left Side

Although I have multiple projects going, one project always follows me around as a pick-up/no thinking/just stitch project. The pick-up candidate must be at a certain level of work where design and fabrics are in place. Lately, my tunic/blouse has kept me company in lost moments (like sitting in hospital waiting rooms).
By chance, I laid the unfinished right front on the finished left front and I liked the flow of the strands. This reflection may come in useful later because if the appliqué is too wild to wear, I will cut it up and make it into something else. 

All kinds of ideas appear out of nowhere when juxtaposing. Here, I will laughingly say that I don't juxtapose often because there are already too many ideas rattling around in my head...

Yes, this is extreme needle turn. If you look over on my main blog (MulticoloredPieces--link is at the top of the sidebar) you'll find several posts about extreme needle turn. My attempt at an article on the subject.

My motto is "nothing is too wild to wear." Your applique is wonderful.

I am really drawn to the complexity of this.

I like this. It is nice to have a carry along project. I have turned back to my knitting for that, but I have some applique that needs finished, so should start taking it with me once in a while.
