Kantha 1

I joined a class on HEN called "Painted Kantha" and this is what I did.
The background is painted and then stitched. It is a very small piece and I stretched it onto a 10x10cm (4"by4") canvas frame. I am not too happy with the writing as it looks faded, but I didn´t want to go over it again, scared I might ruin it completely.
I think this is a good starting point and I already got out all my linen and lose weave cottons. Another technique to explore...
