White & Needle Turn Appliqué, 5

A couple days of rain allowed me some stitching time. So I finished the needle turn appliqué.
It looks like a river delta or erosion to me.
Order to disorder, disintegration, chaos--seems to be on my mind lately. And since everybody over at Jude Hill's Diaries is holding their stitching up to the light,
I taped it to a window. Some interesting secondary designs develop, but this also adds color, if only browns and grays. A different look. For me, the needle turn appliqué becomes more effective.

the monochromatic palette is really effective here. The textured layers make me want to touch it!

I agree - the up to the light version is very compelling.

Wonderful. It also looks like grass growing....upside down
