Oldies but goodies

These are some of the thread paintings I have done in the past. I am starting on a new series of thread painted portraits but in the meantime here are some of the pieces done in the past.


The 2 crow pieces were sketched with pencil onto soluble stabilizer and stitched from the back.



The ginkgo was done free motion with no pattern. I just winged it.


This is a bobbin sketch done from the back using a sketch on tissue paper which I picked off. I later did the crows with the soluble stabilizer - much easier.

  1. I love your birds -- so cool. I'm going to have to get out my soluble stabilizer and play with it!

  2. The threadsketching really adds some interesting texture, don't you agree (sure you do ;-)
