Solstice

Stitching continues on this one, I've come to love building mock floss from 4,6, even 8 strands of regular sewing thread, cottons and rayons together with a strand of metallic thrown in for pizzazz. "Chess 3" just before mummification ( I solved the problem of the process darkening white fabric!) and something new just started to celebrate the turning of the year. Did someone mention that there's a heavy holiday breathing down my neck? Jim just left to find us a tree!

I love the freedom with which you express though your fabric. I can see your intuitive nature here. Nice work!

I did something similar recently, on my very first creative stitching project, but I only used two threads. Reading your post, now I'm nervous... I hope the threads are strong enough to hold over time. (https://curvylouise.wordpress.com/2016/06/14/unraveling/ if you're curious).

I love the idea of combining many threads for color effects. And I LOVELOVELOVE the piece at lower left. It looks so slurpably tactile, and the colors are so subtle, and rather haunting. It's beautiful.
