After trying out a bunch of different stitching designs in my drawing app, I started actual stitching today, with real thread. But before I get to the real thread, here are some of my doodles.
My plan was to start connecting all those circles with a sort of ghostly, white stitching, but how? I always like a squared up pattern, but maybe this is a bit too static.
Back to straight lines, which I really think are a better counterpoint to the circles. Do these remind you of a beaded door curtain? Yeah, me too. This isn't it.
Rethinking that top one with a few diamond shapes included.
And that's what I liked the best. I got this far today. It's just a start.
I am liking the look of the white thread. Maybe I am channeling Mark Toby..
It was while I was stitching that I remembered these two artists had used white lines too. Klee's, especially almost looks like stitching. Both would have qualified for our show. What do you know—there really are no new ideas.
