hand stitching

It’s not that I don’t work by hand, I do most of the time. It doesn’t reveal itself though, as most of what I do is pulled out.

On this piece, I’m simply enjoying the aspect of stitching- knowing it’s going to stay – pulling a strong, thick thread through the woven linen fibers. I like the feel of it and it’s calming.

The fabric is hand dyed linen – varying shades of indigo.
