Velvet on Canvas

One thing that is taking up all my waking hours, on the hand stitching side, are these lovely 6" x 8" squares. A piece of velvet, in various shapes, has been appliqued on painted canvas and then hand stitching in hand-dyed threads (silk or wool or cotton) covers the sides.

But you would not believe how many HOURS went into each of those little pieces!
