"Red sky at night, sailor's delight
Red sky in the morning, sailor's warning"
A bit of a well used nautical saying comes to life in this completely hand stitched wall hanging, depicting a little sailboat working across a gentle swell with a fiery sunset sky behind. Get lost in the woven and folded textures of this piece, thinking about your own sailing adventures - either those you have already had or dream about in your future.
The background sky is woven from strips of several fabrics in shades of pink, red and deep orange, and stitched in circles of several colours of thread, including a bit of sparkle. The ocean is folded and stitched to create ripples and texture like the real sea. A pure white border allows the dramatic colours of the piece to stand out. It measures 19.25" x 21.25", and has two loops on the back for hanging.
This piece is one of a kind and made with care.
