making marks…

 using some of my fabric monoprints…

stitching with needle and thread without thinking too much…

filling in spaces and following lines (that is my friend Nathalie’s wonderful pin cushion creation…she may have a leg left here)

varying the number of threads I use embroidering mostly dashes and french knots…

my own kind of stitched Morse Code

“Weigh’st thy words before thou givest them breath” ~William Shakespeare

  10. I’m still playing with my mono prints too! (not stitching though, as I used paper only) I’m so happy you showed the gelatine technique!!! Your fabric pieces with embroidery are magical and so YOU! Love them!

  11. Holy cow. This is gorgeous. And yes, I’ll leave all that hand stitching to you, my dear. Holding a needle is a bit like zentangling. I can’t do either and be able to use my hand the next two days. But I’m loving how you used one of your gel prints. Awesome.

  32. Patty these are simply beautiful! I just recently got my Gelli plates (yes I indulged in two) and am totally immersed in printing my own fabric. It’s magical isn’t it! I wish I had your wonderful stitching skills though. Or maybe it’s just the patience I need. lol
