Storytelling with thread

8 July 2008 at 3:45 pm (Crafted!) ()

I am amazed with embroidery, and the power it has to transform from a single strand into a story. I bought a book of embroidery motifs for inspiration, and it’s funny how I can flip it over and over, from cover to cover, and each time, see something new.

I just realised today that I’ve collected a bit of a stockpile of photos, and I have a bona fide series of small embroidered motifs! It’s rather elementary, but I’m happy to share it with the world. Each of these have special meaning to me — it relates something that’s happened to me, or reminds me of a person in my life — a friend, a teacher, a kitty who almost became a pet (and what a cutie she was!).
