Art Deco Dancers


Art Deco Dancers is a design I adapted from a decal. I think the decals are put out by a company that makes shoes for ballroom dancers and we have one on each of our cars. I got the decals at a store in San Diego. I added the Art Deco border design which I adapted from a design in an Art Deco coloring book. The dancers are stitched completely in a black metallic (I think I used a thread called Moonlight which is no longer made). There is some silver metallic in the border. All the rest is DMC floss. This piece and the previous one, Goeckel's Dancers, hang in our Music Room in Reno, along with a couple of other music & dance related pieces that I will be showing you in the next few days.

Liz,

Two very beautiful pieces. I love them both.

There does not seem to be any limit to what can be created, only our lack of our imagination can stop us.

I also can't wait to see what other lovely pieces you still have to show us :-)

I love this one! As Tango was my dance back in "the day" - I can look at this and hear the Trio Los Panchos singing "El Choclo" - very smooth. This piece is great, and very imaginative.
