Friday Finishes - Gathering

Good morning.  I have new work to show you.  I'm not sure what it's called.  Yarn paintings?  I spent much of May stitching coloured yarns with a giant needle for the 'Heart to Hand' show at Handmade House next month.

The subtitle of the show is 'glimpses of prairie'.  I will still have some prairie vista threadpaintings, but I am excited to display my new work as well.  It's kind of embroidery... looks a little like felting and works like an oil painting with each stitch looking like a brushstroke loaded with colour.

Gathering in progress

This is a big piece in the style of Where Sunlight Falls (in Edmonton) and will be framed BIG liek that - 12x22".  To put a huge horizontal image on my blog will always look teenytiny, but here it is nonetheless.  I finished it up yesterday morning. 

All I can say is that I want to do more like this!  It's big - the work is 14 inches across.  Next I think I'll try something with a sky.  Chunky yarns might look terrific as clouds and such.  I'll have to go shopping first.  I really don't own a lot of blue.

Have a great day!

I would call it embroidery, and it is beautiful. I'm beginning to think you are a Canadian Jan Beaney...

Oooo-ooooh.... Now that's interesting... It's a bit like needlepoint graffiti. :-)
