|Detail from Brasserie Enflammé, 2012.|
Been quietly sketching and stitching on three projects.
|Stitching while waiting for my car to be serviced.|
My 1970s-themed piece for the Phat Quarter Swap from Mr X Stitch (which I'm organizing!)
|The pile of colors & |
My Color Words project, which has taken a new turn... I'm thinking of a stitched color wheel.
|It is a great joy to stitch up other people's handwriting.|
And the Tiny Great Curve piece, which I'm working on sketching the background for. I want something dreamlike and filled with plant life. Think of a Henri Rousseau jungle in muted colored stitch.
|Sketching late at night.|
I've been sketching and practicing stitching leaves in different threads.
|Fishbone stitch, on linen. Thick & thin thread.|
Mixed in with dry days the corporate desk job, I've been cooking, reading, watching films, hanging with my squeeze and other friends and spending lovely time with my nephews Kels & Hudson (ages 18 & 13) who are in town from Austin.
