1 Year of Stitches, 2017. > January 2017.

January 23, 2017. *** here is the link to the complete video of my 1 year of stitches 2016! https://vimeo.com/199515132*** Off white chain stitches tonight. I'm loving this color story and I might have to break my own rules and stick with it! Or, start a new project with these colors. I was reading about samplers today and specifically that they were historically used as “sketch books” for artists to record design ideas and practice stitches. This was the case until printed books became more common in the 16th century. I initially approached this project as if sharing my sketch book, I'm pleased to learn that there is some historical context to that! #1yearofstitches #wip #embroidery #embroideryart #handembroidery #contemporaryembroidery #bordado #broderie #embroideryinstaguild #stitches #backstitch #frenchknots #white #offwhite #doodle #threaddoodle #chainstitch #runningstitch #sketchbook #history #monday #mondaynight #thread #fiberart #sewing #textiles #textileart #art #needleandthread
