I love to take gorgeous scraps of fabric like this vintage shibori-dyed silk and create unique, improvisational embroideries.
This abstract hoop incorporates satin stitch, French knots, a wool pompom, sequins and beads. It is stitched in jewel tones of teal, blue, and fuchsia that offset the peach and pearl background. The stitching flows in organic forms that are layered, producing a sense of depth.
This embroidery is finished in the hoop with a felt backing stitched with my initials.
