Here's some works in progress. I am sure enjoying the needle and thread, stitching in and out, filling up the spaces. Added some words: machine stitched and hand stitched.
The background is hand painted and printed on this last piece. All the fabrics are recycled ones: a blouse, ties, dresser scarf. Even the painted and printed background - I clean my brushes and brayers on a damp old bed sheet. let it dry all scrunched up and then leaf print and stamp it.
