Finishing the Rain

I"m working this afternoon so I thought I'd take the time this morning to finish my "rain".

This was my own painted fabric and I really liked the result of the thread work.
But I hadn't used a heavy backing as a nod to showing my stitching on the back and I ran into trouble.
The edges of this piece were so wowed it wouldn't hang properly.
I knew I had to remount it but couldn't decide how. I had no material that came anywhere near the turquoise in the material. So I went for a black burlap print.
Careful stitching gathered the offensive edges and now it hangs straight.
I LOVE it on my "Portuguese Blue" wall.!


But again there is no stitching on the backside. Sigh.....
