This is the original Madonna on Linen. I did this piece as a practice piece. I wanted to see if I could embroider a Madonna face on Linen. I had decided after I made it that I would possibly frame it….so, I had marked it with ink pen.

Since I am stitching my special (spirit) cloth I wanted to put Mother Mary/Madonna in it and I decided to use this piece because it is most like the paintings of Madonna that I do. Because I had used ink on the cloth I had to cover it. Hence, the roses.  I like the result and I love antique roses. Also, I have always associated roses with Mary.
