More pieces and parts

So, I did add some more stitching to this little piece and I think it works better. One commenter thought it should be turned upside down.

Nah. I don't think so. It is static enough as it is. Sitting it on a base makes it really  just squat there, in my opinion.

Here's another little village-y piece.


I went and bought some black matte board to mount these on. Holy moly, it has gotten expensive! I have been using scraps for ages now and finally ran out.

I got a lot of nitsy stuff done today—cutting matte board, finishing up those little pieces, and I finally got a decent photo of the Red Domes piece and another smaller piece in the series. They have been posted under "current work" in the tab above.

I need black thread to finish the edges of some of these small pieces and I am out. I like the Connecting Threads thread so well that I ordered more, including a gigantic 5000 yd cone of black. I hope it arrives tomorrow. The irony is that Connecting Threads is about 20 miles away from me, just across the river in Vancouver, Washington, and it takes 4-5 days for a package to get to me.

  1. I really like both of these pieces and would like to see them mounted. Do they go in a frame? I think what really attracts me is the stitch work in black. Is it a regular weight or heavier thread?

  2. Oh, sorry, and I meant to add that I do prefer your orientation of the first piece too. Much more interesting.
