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

Those are great! Did you do them for someone or are you keeping them? What did you stitch them on? Are they your own design?

They were actually a collaboration with one of my best friends who is a fantastic artist. You can check out his digital designs at www.adventuringcompany.com. He also hosts my personal website, www.suddenlyshy.com. I embroidered these on duct cloth. I embroider on duct cloth a lot because it's durable, it's similar in texture and density to canvas, and it doesn't require interfacing. Basically It allows me to do heavy needlework without the fabric bunching or having to yank on it too much. I am keeping them for my own personal collection. I've shown them in galleries a few times. Since the fabric can be manipulated very much like canvas, I stretched them around canvas stretchers and show them like I would paintings.
