Working in a smaller scale

I've been working on making some napkins for the holidays.  Napkins work best with small motifs, so I've been creating some new, simple designs that would work well with napkins or small pieces of fabric.  Here are two new designs, both batiks created on silk hemp fabric.  The color I'm calling nutmeg. A warm brown with overtones of deep orange.  I ran a lot of swatches, mixing various blues and oranges to get his hue. It's a terrific hue for fall. I'm going to dye some embroidery floss to match these and will offer them as a small bundle.
