Just stitching. Red scrap salvaged from student scrap box at ACAD. I even left the dart in 🙂
For the need of it.
For the sake of it. Naturally dyed threads:
For the potential, new work component:
All she will have is the honeycombs, i think.
For the nostalgia, old project picked up again (“A Stone’s Throw from the Midnight Lake”), stitching started 2009:
Started with embroidery again this past week. And yup, i’m hiding the machined lines with hand embroidery, not that i think it’s bad or not valid, just because i can, and like the heavier/more textural look with hand embroidery. Mixing naturally dyed with the commercially dyed as well, ’cause colour is colour. (And what a ridiculous time frame for such a small piece…. 15.5×23.5″)
I’m thinking an indigo moon might work in that centre? A face? A tree? Mmmm, tree.
For the possibility, new work, sample, done enough to think about:
Idea to be incorporated in piece with the lace figure.
For the practice, keeping the hand in.
It’s that Magical Thinking time of the year again. We don’t worry about it, each day, each year much the same (safe, warm, employed, happily married and parenting animals, no drama), but if that turn of a calendar page does something for you, enjoy it. See ya on the flip side.
