Am I Blue?

There was a call for entries entitled "Tangled Up in Blue" that I wanted to enter. I was not satisfied with my original creation and wound up missing the deadline.
What I've shown you here are some stages I went through. Yes! I did cut the original into 4 pieces before continuing on!


 I used silk and felt to create the tangles. I hand-stitched with Perl cotton thread. The fabrics are a mix of my husband's old shirts and my hand-painted and dyed cottons.

I really wanted to give the impression of rising out of the tangle of blues.
What is your impression?
"Tangled Up In Blue" measures 38"x38"
