Dancing on a White Wall

I worked on some more free motion embroidery dancers.  The previous ones  (see here) were done in off-white thread and looked good against a coloured wall or back ground.  I decided to do some that looked good against a white wall.

As I did before, I photographed them outside and then inside on a wall.

After I had done the first one outside, the wind blew both frames over and broke the glass in one of them.  As both mats  are the same size I took the rest of the pictures using the glass-less frame.

The multicoloured cotton thread was hand dyed by Linda Palaisy.  I use a lot of her thread in my work.

  1. Those are amazing! I love the movement!

  2. Admiring the persistence you put into your site and in depth information you provide. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed information. Wonderful read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  3. These are so fun! Love all the air around them in the design. Magic!
