tonight i spent hours working on one of my pieces for not a stitch while episode after episode of the cosby show played in the other room.  it made me think about this portrait of bill cosby that i embroidered for a show a few years ago, and also made me realize that the tiny pieces of paper i’m working with on this piece are nothing compared to making the hundred of french knots that make up his hair.

With Love

From humble beginnings:

To finished piece:

This nearly 3 foot tall embroidery took over 100 hours, and is now hanging at The Gleaners Cafe and Gallery in a group Valentine show.  The  banner says “With Love” in Russian, and contains 8 different kinds of thread and floss.  It is very safe to say that I am on a break from embroidery for a while.

Detail:

Humble Beginnings. The start of an embroidery for one of two Valentine shows I will be a part of.  The band aids on my fingers have been covered by masking tape today.  And notice the large bottle of Advil in the background…
