2017

March 3, 2017. I'm glad that I decided to continue this project and begin a new hoop at the start of the year because this year is already completely different from the last, resulting is a completely different piece. I've noticed that I'm more drawn to repeating patterns and motifs, which adds an element of control to this piece. I'm in a period of transition right now so it makes sense to me that I would crave consistency. Last year I had an incredibly regimented schedule with zero free time so my embroidery was all over the place because I couldn't be. Anyway. More long and short stitches today. I had the time to stitch this afternoon and I wanted to capture a detail shot in some of the glorious California sunshine we get in our apartment. Scroll through to see who else wanted to be involved with my stitching... #1yearofstitches #wip #embroidery #embroideryart #handembroidery #contemporaryembroidery #bordado #broderie #embroideryinstaguild #stitches #backstitch #orange #doodle #threaddoodle #longandshort #detail #detailshot #catsofinstagram #penelopekitty #fabricfriday #friday #fridaynight #thread #fiberart #sewing #textiles #textileart #art #needleandthread
