It's snipped off the frame now and is drying because once a piece like this is complete, a glue solution must be lightly added to the back to prevent threads from coming undone or fraying. It seals the piece. The bottom squiggles and doodles on the piece are practice areas that were unworked before I started the main portion. Since I already knew the basics of tambour embroidery before I went to embroidery school at Lesage in Paris, we left them mostly blank. Now I plan to cut them off and use them in smaller pieces.
Another part of my trip is taking my finished tambour embroidery pieces to the art centers in the area, to try and generate interest in forming a beginner's class I can teach later this year. Wish me luck!
