"Washday Blues" FFFC #32`
"Washday Blues" is finished. You will note a bit of happiness for this hard working gal in the water bucket.
Continuing with my 'woman' theme, and thinking about my Mom and grandmother and the hard work those pioneer women did, brought this one to life. My grandmother had a scrub board and washing machine like this one.
I've used the analogous hues of red to
yellow orange, and the compliment of blue.
The background is woven fabric. Lot's of hand stitching and a bit of machine stitching to finish it off.
This piece has been sold.
