Here are two pieces I stitched a while ago now. I dyed and painted the backgrounds, collaged and stitched bits, added yarns, roving, cheesecloth, leftover bits, thread ends and what have you. The pear from the picture on the left was prepared separately on the embellisher. I don't normally 'name' my pieces, but the one on the right I call Coming Home. One of the things I find quite fascinating is when someone else looks at a more abstract piece I have worked on and turns it around to find, what is for them, the 'right way up.' I suppose it's what we do with the various pieces of our lives. And then we add our own bits. Life, gotta love it!
