"Handmade by Elise"

My silk painting with free-associations of
words and images is complete with a hand
stitched rolled hem. I asked my sister if she
had ever sewn one before and she said that
she hadn't, but she had seen it done once.
Mine is not perfect, but it is a hand-rolled hem,
created by keeping tension on the fabric, and it
feels like quite an accomplishment for me. I
need a magnifying glass to see the "blind" stitches!
