Some years ago I use to play around with heavily textured needle woven pieces using scraps of whatever I had on hand. I picked up one of my old books the other night and began paging through, and feeling as organic as I am right now, I thought I would lay something out and just stitch, letting my needle do whatever it thought to do.
The lighting on the last image was a bit off, the piece is a little cooler than the colors of the close up might indicate. This has been a fun experiment and a good review of some of the stitches I once used in work so long ago. More tomorrow!
