for this contemporary kantha piece is Frida Kahlo, one of the great artists whose work I admire a lot.

It took me about week or so to finish the stitching and, I used two layers of very thin cotton. I sketched the face on paper, after several attempts this was the one finally made for stitching. Well, my drawing looks nothing like her :)

 I  have not yet thought about how I want to display it. I have an oval shaped canvas( I used it take this photos) or an embroidery frame might work too.

What do you think of my Frida?

Thank you for stopping by for a peek,
