Like most of you I have all sorts of fabrics in my studio. Some are large pieces and some have been cut into many times. The above snippet of fabric is a piece of mono-printed fabric that came from a very productive printing session and the fabrics from that session keep popping up.
I enjoy the marks on the fabric and responded to those marks in this little study by simply stitching over them in a pinkish white. I liked it enough that I decided to try another slightly larger study with pieces of the same fabric.
Pieced fabric composition
This little composition is roughly 15" square and will serve as the base for new stitching.
Stitching in early stage.
I decided to create a square within the square and stitch inside that area, varying the number of threads I am using. You can see how the value of the stitching is changing. I'm not sure how I will proceed but I may keep it VERY SIMPLE. The stitches begin with three strands and end with one strand.
This small exploration fits in nicely with my interest in Simplicity and Complexity. I'll just have to see if the "acorn" grows into a tree or blows away with the wind.
Thank you for spending time at Studio 24-7. I love hearing from you and Remember:
