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.

prozac, what a lovely, evil little pill. it took me four years before i was able to quit. i've always wanted an homage to my past (besides crying at Coma White's lyrics "a pill to make you numb, a pill to make you dumb, a pill to make you anybody else. but all the drugs in this world won't save her from herself) and this is an interesting way to do it.

i can't wait to see the other work in your series!

I knew what that was as soon as I saw the tiny thumbnail flash on the screen.  I love it- I think you did exactly what you intended as you described.

Nice stitching! It reminds me of VanGogh's style.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

That looks like it took an awfully long time to do. Is that a whole bunch of different colors or is that variegated thread?

the painterly stitching is amazing ...

but i think the part i DIDN'T originally like is growing on me -- that annoying background that makes it look like those happy adverts for these kinds of meds.  it works, actually.

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.
