drawing with threads.

black thread on cream linen.
 
 
inspired by wild flowers,

 
fossils,

 
and feathers.

 
panic has set in over prepartions for the Alnmouth Arts Festival next weekend, if you want me I'll be buried under a pile of threads somewhere.........

  14. These are fantastic T, I could see these as pieces of art in those hanging embroidery frames, or as a panel on a rustic tote bag. They must take ages to do. Definitely going to be a sell out at the festival! J x
