something new

The other day I finally finished a new piece that has been waiting in the wings for it's final stitches. As usual I have multiple projects going, when I am not in the mood to stitch on one, I go stitch on the other. So now this other is ready to be seen.

I have kept up with my current obsession of stitching on plastics, but this time I have trapped newsprint in between and I love how it faintly shows through the different shades of plastic bags.

Now I need to figure out which piece I am in the mood to stitch next. The small multi-layered heavily hand stitched one or the large plastic one in need of tons and tons of machine embroidery? hmmm....

Awesome perspective, love the shades of plastic, long stitches, and yes the words!

I love the way you mix the hard lines of architecture with the softness of materials & color.
