For some time now, I have been noticing how hand stitching with large threads like perle cotton can add so much texture to fiber art pieces. I am always on the lookout for new ways to add texture. It’s like…the texture is the thing I see first…that catches my eye. So here is a little piece I did this week.
Paint rag, perle cottons #5 and #8, polyester quilting thread, Mykonos ceramic beads, paint, and seed beads. I call it “Flow”. 6 3/4″ x 8 3/4″….too bad it couldn’t have just ended up at 7 x 9 but you have to trim. :=) It will be for sale once I mount it.

It’s like we’re following the same path 🙂 Nice piece.
I love it !! I really love your maching quilting it is such a nice contrast to the hand embroidery .
You know, I love the wonky perle cotton stitch. This is looking good!
My first reaction to it was that it was a kite flying in the clouds, over land and with a long tail! Very nice piece!
The big yellow stitches are wonderful and the red beads (?) really draw me in.
Great piece. I have fun with unintentional work. I think it’s because intuition takes over when you’re not vested in the results.
