Book of Etudes, Yellow on Black

I stitched my way through April and May in a new project--a Book of Etudes ("Studies"). The rules were simple enough: only hand stitching, and only simple shapes in needle turn appliqué, with stitching added. I've wanted to explore the combination of needle turn appliqué with stitching for a long time. Purely abstract and organic--studies in color, form, and texture. Here is a study in yellow (8"x6"), which is probably not finished.   

The back is a page also, a sort of shadow page that echoes the appliqué. Much more to do on this one. 

So many possibilities!

The yellow motif, in its bright abstraction, so intuitively stitched, makes me smile. Thank you.
