flooring it




Well, it seems I have about a dozen things going at once.. do you do that? Have a bunch of stuff going, and then bam, I get so I have to FINISH something! Don't get me wrong, I love the process, as much as the next, but I do like to have a completion, somewhere. I'm not proud, nor exclusive, either, I like hand sewing, machine sewing, and all the rest in between.
This is a long, shroud-like piece that is done, and is supposed to be a self-portrait of sorts. I got my machine back from the service center, and decided to stitch small, 2" to 3" or so, free-motioning, consisting of ideas of what I like, and what I see in front of me. Much hand stitching and embelishing followed, as well..
I then cut them all apart and appliqued them, grid-like to the banner, which is 7' long! An extremely fun and satisfying project.. more pix soon..
