i could have used some of this this week...
... stitch therapy that is!
keeping place for visual and other ideas for visual artist
One of the images I reblogged was this one... posted by the lovely Grrl ( and dog) whom many bloggers are acquainted with ...lured to her blog by her wit and warmth, quirkiness and loveliness!
Stitch therapy ...sounds good to me!
I know a lot of you practice that fine art... but for me its been years!
I guess my relationship to fabric has become a little more along the lines of painting on fabric... although not in this manner above... i've included this image as i like it.
Here are a few images that were quickly found at Tumblr!
Net 8 by Ruth Garrison - 39 x 61 inchesHand dyeing, machine piecing, machine quilting
example of sashiko stitching on boro futon cover
Threadbareby Gwen Samuelsimages on transparencies, tea bags, thread - 22 x 22”
I'll leave you with this intriguing work ...there are many more i could have included here... including work of people I know who are wonderfully gifted stitchers ...
hello to 'R' who visited the other day ... a local talent and friend of some further away queens of the needle and more!
Ill try and say bye before I head off on Wednesday on this trip I' ve been so busily pulling things together for. Hope you are enjoyng the weekend all!
