Cutting edge celtic work

while I've been 'resting' getting my foot better after surgery I have been working on this piece which looks very traditional using celtic knot designs but actually its quite a contemporary technique. the knot work is done using evalon fabric (spun polyester) which has been foiled and painted, the design is machine stitched from the back ( a reverse applique technique) and then the design is revealed on the front when it is cut away with a soldering iron - et voila !
