1 Year of Stitches, 2017. > March 2017.

March 9, 2017. I just couldn't stop with the French knots tonight. I used two shades of orange and it's been a while since I've used more than one color of thread with this project. I have orange on my mind this evening and I wanted to celebrate that. I took the long way to the train tonight and ended up meandering through Fi-Di and part of Chinatown. I saw a bright orange building peeking through an alleyway and was so taken with how it stood out against the other buildings; in that moment I t occurred to me how much I love the color orange. I can't wear it, the color isn't good with my complexion, but man does it pop. Orange is a color that sings and I'm enjoying working with it this month. 🔥🍊👘📙 #1yearofstitches #wip #embroidery #embroideryart #handembroidery #contemporaryembroidery #bordado #broderie #embroideryinstaguild #stitches #frenchknot #orange #odetoorange #doodle #threaddoodle #deatil #deatilshot #zoom #thursday #thursdaynight #thread #fiberart #sewing #textiles #textileart #art #needleandthread
