I'm part of a contemporary, embroidery group on Flickr: Phat Quarter.
I embroider to relax. I embroider to carry on seemingly 'dieing' craft. Phat Quarter makes me think otherwise. We're alive and well, hopefully getting closer to galleries.
Every month with a fifth Friday, the group organizes a swap. This month the theme was 'Music.' I decided to go somewhat generic. I ran the canvas through my inkjet and embellished. It was a quick and fun piece. Now that I'm able to print directly onto fabric with my printer I've been going crazy with embroidery. To bad I haven't found that motivation for my classes. I need a muse. . .
I'm off to Norman this weekend so I should get back to packing. Have a Happy Weekend!
