I've been thinking what an amazing windowshade this technique would make for my craft room, if only I could think of or find an image that's simple enough to do. (Yours is WAY out of my league.) Thanks for sharing the mechanics.

(You've crossed my mind several times today, and I've been praying for you....)

The piece that I originally saw that was done in a technique similar to this used 1-1/2 inch squares and it was really simple... but huge, he did a deer with antlers I believe. Curtains would be really cool because you can use the space so well, I imagine doing it with larger pieces would make it a bit easier, but it is quite flimsy to work with so you have to be careful.

This is gorgeous and amazing.  Thanks for sharing the art piece - and more importantly the story behind it.

I wish I had the words to express how intuitive and amazing this is; it is wonderfully crafted and deeply meaningful! I hope that your journey through life (and craft) brings you the happiness you seek. Smiley

OMG...I gasped as I scrolled down to the final image!


I too feel an affinity to the 'Venus' and have a mock Venus Of W on my mantle. She resonates.

It's a great piece and an interesting technique but a much nicer story. Good luck and you'll be in my thoughts. Peace and good things to you.

Your story is very touching,and as other crafters have told you ,you'll also be in mine.and with this i left your page.Something told me go back and write: "Maybe you feel fragile like the little squares but I believe you're as strong as the thread that holds them together"

Thank you for sharing your story and your art.  What a gift you have to be able to share your feeling through your art.

I do love this piece and would love to use this technique in my house.  What type of thread did you use?  Is it just regular thread???

Thanks and "this rocks"
