Story in Stitch

From a recent workshop with Ilze Aviks, "Telling Your Story in Stitch", this was a 10-minute exercise in telling either a real story or an imaginary one, with fabric, stitch, and color. With an extremely limited palate in class, it was an interesting challenge. Commercial fabrics, hand-stitched, later enhanced with color-transfer crayons. (No, I'm not telling what the story is ... I think the mystery is better than the story!)


  1. There is something very sweet about this...I don't mean in a bad way, it is very appealing.

  2. I think it's very sweet, too, because it makes me think of my three little grandsons swinging on the swingset in our back yard.

  3. Nope ... it's not a swingset and it's not the 3 Little Pigs ... although the more I look at it, the more it looks like one or both! I love the idea that everyone sees something different in it. Thanks for the comments!


Talk to me, Y'all!
