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!

What a wonderful idea and fabulous execution.  Is that seed stitch?  I'm very taken with the vibrancy of this piece.

Thanks!  It's a random stitch I use for painterly work.  It's like seed stitch and long-and-short stitch together.

I love Pablo Neruda and this is absolutely gorgeous! I love the colours and the texture you've created with the stitching. It looks like it could be a painting! Great job C:

I am so in love with this.  Your shading is impeccable. I really like your choice of background fabric, too.

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

I'll do a few more pieces to practice my craft.  I have a spoon and scissors planned, but the only criteria I have is that the object be something I use on a daily basis.

Thanks for all of the interest and kind words.  I can't produce drugs and guns every time.  I've got to relax sometimes.

This pin cushion makes me miss my mum, she used to yell at me taking it all the time because it was just a cool object when I was little. Have to stitch one of these up myself now and gift it to her. Lovely lovely work! =)

This is really cool, I love the finished look of it! May I ask if you have a close-up or process shot of the stitch, I'd love to be able to study it more. Smiley
