"Rural Roads" was inspired by both my love of old mended textiles, and the rural county side surrounding where I live. The colors reflect the grey cloudy days that have been hanging around of late, causing everything to take on an aged and faded quality.

Measuring 12" x 10", this patched and hand stitched textile piece features cloth from vintage feedsacks, as well as a bit of hand woven cotton twill, (which I personally weaved myself, on a vintage 4 harness, metal Structo Artcraft table-top loom.)

Note: Being that the feedsacks are old, some age related staining and discoloration is now an intergral part of them. I don't see this as a flaw, but instead as a lovely patina and a testament to the life they previously led!)

There is no attached hanging device on this piece. It would be beautiful framed, but can also be hung as is in its pure state, (which is how I prefer) by several methods, including clips, t-pins or one of my favorite quick tricks... rolled up pieces of acid free drafting tape, applied to the backside, sticky side out. The drafting tape holds well, and generally removes easily. This last method works particularly well if you like to re-arrange, re-decorate and move things around a lot! Piece may also be displayed flat on a tabletop.

Delivery Confirmation is included and provided for all Domestic purchases.

Please Note: While I try my very best to accurately represent the colors in my photographs, please keep in mind that colors may vary from monitor to monitor, sometimes appearing a bit brighter, and sometimes appearing a bit more washed out then they actually are.
