Techniques: Piecing, raw edged fused applique, free-motion thread embroidery, and quilting was all done by machine. The fabric manipulation technique of "wrinkle pleating/crinkling" was used for the towel, washcloth, trash on floor and the trash in the wastebasket. I utilized multiple layering of cottons, organza and lame to create special fabric effects (e.g., mirror that reflects, drinking glass with well-used toothbrush, puddle on floor, toilet seat, faucet, and water pipes). I also used machine free-motion thread embroidery to create texture for the Goddess's hair and the cat's fur. The flower basket hanger was hand crocheted. Silk ribbon embroidery was used to create the fern plant. Fringe for the rug was stitched and glued in place. The "Home Sweet Home" sampler cross-stitch was done by hand. Beads and buttons were also added by hand sewing. The mouse under the sink just showed up!
