Adding on

Adding on, originally uploaded by jckirner.

A true sampler - freeform adding-on to the walnut dyed fabrics.

The red band on the linen swatch is hard to needle through - very squeaky as the thread is pulled and pushed and manoeuvered through. (Looking at it again I get a flashback to the TV program on in the background as I stitched this. Stitching often secures imprints of moments that come back when I review the work.)

A grey day this morning - soft light for photographs. And a busy day with a birthday party here for the 11 year old. YIKES!!


  1. JAckie, i'm really liking the direction you're taking here---i think this would be wonderful with some of the Egyptian or Sumerian (?) women's heads you did previously--or on its own, as i wouldn't presume to tell you what to do :} It is LOVELY!

  2. Oh waht gorgeous work you have displayed here...just amazing and so textural and true.


Thanks for stopping by!! Love to read your comments - whether on vintage thrifting or creative stitching!! (Comments are moderated due to high spam lately - sorry!)
