Trying different techniques

I'm still playing around with techniques.  This time I have done a mixture of quilting, machine embroidery, especially making 'lace', and a tiny bit of hand sewing.  I am trying to layer the fabric and get texture.

First I sewed pieces onto satin that had a wool batting.  I didn't use any support, vilene or hoop, so that it is quite bumpy and textured.

Then I did some machine sewing 'lace' and added that.

As I said, it has quite a bit of texture.

Isn't it amazing, how different it looks when the camera is set for different times of day and lighting.

It is a sample in that I keep trying new things to make it different.  I hope I know when to stop.
