Illustration Friday - stitch


cotton fabric, bamboo batting, acrylic ink, cotton and linen thread, stamped letters and acrylic paint on 6" x 6" stretched canvas

The moth is sketched with thread onto a cotton fabric printed with a halftone of one of my ink drawings (it's really pale and doesn't show up much in the photo, or irl for that matter). I missed last week's IF due to a big deadline but really, how could I not do "stitch"?? Even with more deadlines looming.

I like this thread-sketch. The pale printing gives it a suitable ethereality.

Yes -- delicate, subtle, very fresh-feeling.

Hi Jane!
Wonderful response to the IF challenge. I was about to abandon for last week’s journal quilt but your piece inspired my stitching. I hope you post links for your Country Quilter journalers. Thanks for your comments on my blog.
