Skull in Stitch


long and short, satin stitch, couching, french knots
Stitch guide links from the Stitch with the Embroidery Guild

In other news I joined the Hand Embroidery Network

My next goal is to figure out how I want to mount this, or incorporate it into an assemblage.
I am off to ponder about it
and freak out
whether I will remember the steps for thrill the world
what did I get myself into

Wow. Corrine. So very awesome.

I zoomed in on the image. Very impressive.

I'm lovin' this! Great stuff. Why is it the doing is so satisfying and then the mounting/framing/displaying so difficult? At least that's what I find. Especially with textile work. But, yah--fantastic work!

louciano, Traditional framing is a nightmare so I try to do what my 3D teacher drummed into us which is to make the presentation part of the statement of the piece. Easier said than done, arg! but I do like to build my own frames or boxes.
thanks Jan & Teresa :)

Hello Corrine (Jafa lady). Can I just call you Jafa, I like that better. Lol. I'm spotlighting you on my blog (again) in a few weeks. Ok, if I hand-pick some images from your blog for that post?
