More work that I liked at Fiberart International, where dense machine stitching was quite the thing. First, three that were stitched onto a fabric base. Interesting that the first one lies perfectly flat, the second is deliberately distorted by the stitching into 3-D, but the third seems as though it ripples and bulges more by accident than by design.

Next, two stitched onto a disappearing solvy base, but looking like they are stitched onto air.

Apologies that my point-and-shoot camera couldn't focus on this image. The detail show below gives you a much better idea of the wispy texture.
I make abstract art -- usually with a needle but sometimes with a pen, brush or camera, scissors and glue, pliers and wirecutters, whatever is there. I have a husband, two sons, seven sewing machines, a big messy studio and lots of other people's art. Life is good!
