Hanging by a Thread

So here we have my first attempts to create shades, textures, and shapes mainly with embroidery threads but with a little felt, fabric, and beading thrown in for good measure.

It is surprisingly difficult to take materials you are used to working with in a straight-forward manner, and look at them differently. To try and break the neatness that has been so long practiced and to pull and tear at the fabric, rather then treating it carefully.

There is something magical about being unsure of exactly what you’re trying to achieve, and just starting to sew and seeing what direction the needle and thread takes you. Reacting to the weave of the fabric and the shape and tone of the picture that is forming on the material in front of you.
