I've been thinking about what to do with Terry's Orange theme, and became frustrated with my self over the hard time I was having deciding. Finally I thought, just make an orange, duh! And, it's the perfect opportunity for some Kantha stitching.
This blue silk seemed the like a great background, so I started stitching away, using three different thicknesses of thread to emphasize and diminish certain areas.
The fact that you are seeing it now tells you I'm not crazy about it. Probably this blue silk is to rich looking, and then there's the possibility I don't usually work literally, so it's back to thinking about orange, abstractly this time.
