Stitching the Year Out

Fiber art, sewing, quilting, stitching, mark-making, what have you especially enjoyed working on this year?

Hand stitching has been something that has brought me great comfort during 2020. Here are a few of the pieces I’ve finished… Well, the thread work is finished, most have yet to be mounted or framed.

I used solid white, painted, stenciled, and gel plate printed, some commercial fabric for the backgrounds, one even has fused petals. I also discovered that the fabric I love to paint and use for applique, which in the fabric used for most often for batiks, is not as easy to embroider through as a nice regular quilter’s cotton because of the fine thread and tight weave.

I appreciate you stopping by and I hope your wishes for the New Year come true.

Be safe, healthy, and happy.

    Some lovely work, and the hand stitching really enhanced the pieces. I especially loved the mushroom, the green batik with the embroidered flowers, and the beauty and added meaning of the hourglass.
    Thanks for sharing your work.
