Day 140 #AyearInStitches - Black & White Flowers

No automatic alt text available.
I admit - I began the #ayearinstitches January 1st with much enthusiasm 
which has waned from time to time.
 And yet, overall, the discipline of hand stitching and
 posting daily has been good for me in life's great and not so great days. 
Today I completed Flower #2 using black Pearle cotton Buttonhole Stitch.

Hand Embroidery Continues In #Ayearinstitches

No automatic alt text available.
A new art collage begins with 2 strands green DMC 
Knotted Fly Stitch on hand dyed fabrics.
After adding hand painted circles and squiggles,
 I hand embroidered the green hand painted fabric to the collage using 
2 strands green DMC Ladder Stitch.
Thing 2 on this latest Fiber Art Collage -black Pearle cotton thread horizontal 
Seed Stitch applique black/white batik stem.

Freedom Girls -#ayearinstitches

No automatic alt text available.
Using my remaining Surface Design girls etc.
I'm created a new collage.
This Girl of the collage is on hand painted fabric using the 
paint top as a stencil and then.
2 strands purple DMC Chain Stitch outline highlight her shape.
This composition tastes of playing with paper dolls
 which I have not much experience. 
Stitch seems much more fun.

"She Can Laugh" 4 Women Wall Hanging

Mother's Day is coming and it can bring a mix of emotions for so many reasons.
I recently finished this small Quilted Art Wall hanging that gives hope to whatever situation you may be in. It is For Sale in my Etsy Shop 
"She Can Laugh" is 100% hand created beginning with artist's surface design of female models,
 hand embroidery and hand quilting.
Measuring 14 1/2 inches X 11 1/2 inches it is ready to hang.
Each female figure is unique representing various moods, personalities and stages in life.
Yet, there is victory and even though days may be challenging, "She Can Laugh" helps keep perspective.
It would be a great Mother's Day gift for your mom, a friend or yourself. $85

"Be Healed" Embroidery Complete

No automatic alt text available.
Since I chose not to mark the fabric, 
I used parchment paper pinned to the
Fiber Art piece for the word placement.
 I hand embroidered
"be healed" in black Peale Cotton thread. 
I'm not sure it was the best way to do it,
but it worked.

Mother's Day Fiber Art Card

Mother's are so special in our lives and often it's a challenge to find them 
a fitting gift to express our love.
I like to create Fiber Art Cards and use the opportunity
to share Fiber Art and words of love.
I like to get started on Fiber Art Cards early.
I also like to offer workshops so others can create them.
They are a perfect little "I love You".
