1  Self Portrait as a Military Spouse in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by kniterdone on: July 08, 2010 12:11:42 PM


Hand embroidery.
Some yarns are handspun, others are commercial. 
I repurposed some ABU fabric to embellish.

Thanks.  I don't know sometimes if I fit into Art or Craft, but I want to be considered Art at this point in my life.   Wink

3  Embroidered Portrait, Mikhail Kalashnikov in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by kniterdone on: May 04, 2010 02:29:33 PM


Portrait embroidered with cotton, silk, and linen floss on a repurposed USAF dress blues shirt. Measures 11" by 14".

Mikhail Kalashnikov invented the AK47.  As a military wife in the middle of an agonizingly long war, I have worked on military themed art for the last few years.  I know I should put this is Needlework, but I have worked for years to transcend craft and create fine art with the medium.  I hope you'll let me stay.

5  Odes to Common Things in Needlework: Completed Projects by kniterdone on: April 08, 2010 08:21:38 PM
I'm starting a new series inspired by Pablo Neruda's poems.  I'm trying to exhault the ordinary objects that are so much a part of my daily life.



I hope you enjoy it!

6  May Cause Drowsiness in Needlework: Completed Projects by kniterdone on: May 10, 2009 04:04:18 PM
My latest in The Promise of Pills series.  I used cotton and rayon floss on a traditional linen tea towel.  The image is approx 10" by 4".  I have always loved the sleepy eye on Rx bottle stickers.  I blogged about it if you're interested in the idea behind it.  30 or more shades of floss.

8  New Series: The Promise of Pills in Needlework: Completed Projects by kniterdone on: April 21, 2009 05:00:00 PM
I'm exploring my 23 year love affair with meds.  Join me, won't you?

My biggest concern was trying to get stitching to look like painting--gestural and complex.  I am crazy excited about this project.

10  I am a board hog...finished weaving in Weaving: Completed Projects by kniterdone on: February 21, 2009 05:16:12 PM
I've never posted to the weaving board before, so I thought I'd just put everything in one post.

The purple and white blanket is handspun.


The red and brown blanket is 4ft by 8 ft.


The hot pink thing is a scarf for my stepdaughter.


The pillow was a gift to my husband for our cottton anniversary.


Thanks for looking!
Alex
