I completed this thread painting of my best friend's collie dog, Max. Max died of cancer several years ago. I am giving this to her in a couple of weeks as a surprise. I turned a picture of Max into an applique and put down the base, then thread painted it with rayon thread. I used Angelina fiber for his eye shine, and I used some Shiva paint for the painted spots on the butterflies, then stitched over it.
