On the work table now is a piece of free stitching in neutral tones with vintage off white thread and some metallic touches.
This is what it looks like when I’m working on it up close.
This is what it looks like overall. I will keep adding to this piece and have nowhere in particular that I want to take it. It is a wandering, freeform piece. I like the colors and the density of the stitches.
After working with muted tones, I craved a bit of color. Here is what I’ve gathered for a future piece. I’ve begun some stitching for what will be more of a collage piece than a wandering piece. The fabrics are hand dyed and I am using Painter’s Threads.
I spotted him quietly keeping me company under the photography table. He looks like the first neutral toned piece above.
