ICON

 This is a piece I started while still in Kazakhstan but finished here in UK. It is made using an embroidered piece I bought in a haberdashery shop in Almaty........I have a liking for icon style images!
 I used a cut out of the cathedral to stencil the outline around the embroidered piece and then across the other page.
 I like this orthodox version of a cross.

Our packing boxes with our stuff from Almaty arrived yesterday, way sooner than we expected so my house now looks like a bomb hads gone off while we try and fit everything back in! 3 trips to the tip later.....the crap you keep is amazing!!
