Hand Stitching during the trip to England
I stitched on the plane (using my dental floss cutter to snip threads). I stitched on the trains and in the evening while Mathias and Alex played soccer video games. I finished four and a half pieces during the trip and completed the last one just the other night. Once home, I covered each piece with a sheer chiffon scarf and free-motion embroidered into each one. The edges were free-motion zig-zagged. Each one is approximately 10" x 8". Above is Elements of Architecture XLII. Below is XLIII.
Above is Elements of Architecture LXIV. Below is XL.
The last image is of Elements of Architecture XLI. Hopefully, soon, I will be taking pictures of the pieces I created over the weekend...my "Strata" series...pieces head to the solo exhibition!
