I stitched my way through April and May in a new project--a Book of Etudes ("Studies"). The rules were simple enough: only hand stitching, and only simple shapes in needle turn appliqué, with stitching added. I've wanted to explore the combination of needle turn appliqué with stitching for a long time. Purely abstract and organic--studies in color, form, and texture. Here is a study in yellow (8"x6"), which is probably not finished.
The back is a page also, a sort of shadow page that echoes the appliqué. Much more to do on this one.
So many possibilities!
