Caricatures in Fabric

This is my first fabric piece in many months...possibly a year, in fact.  I started it for a magazine challenge with the theme of Going Places, but I won't be submitting it after all.  The size is slightly larger than allowed.  

The piece is based on a photograph with caricatures of the images in the photo thread-outlined over fabric flowers and leaves.  Surprisingly, my open-toe, free-motion foot broke while working on it. I guess, for some reason, it wasn't happy.

In any case, I consider this piece a rescued failure.  Its not perfect nor particularly great, but it is meaningful to me.  It conveys the energy of a special group of friends who went places together!
