Playing with a triptych

I often think we don't allow ourselves to play enough so I began to make a series of three teabag related squared that i could mount on A4 composite board and set up as a freestanding triptych - sort of a forerunner to my Miringa te Kakara project that I will begin at the end of April. Here I am stitching used teabags directly onto some organza. My initial ideal was to use this piece in conjunction with the heat press and botanical prints so I couldn't fuse the tea bags onto a substrate as the heat from the press would melt the glue again. I am stitching in a random C or leaf free machining design that I have often used before.
