circle stitching

well, I was trying a knit-a-year project but since I don’t have much yarn here (on overseas trips) and have been more interested in stitching and embroidery lately, I’ve decided to shift to a stitch-a-day project instead. I might use my other blog for another project so will relocate the articles here (or add to the previous post).

my first attempt – I’ve been totally inspired by the work of Junko Oki and since attempting to stitch circles in a modified blanket stitch, I can see more clearly just how fine and free her beautiful stitching is. mine feels large and clumsy in comparison, so I will need to practice more to create smaller stitches. also, I need to bring more fabric to use as a background as on this trip I only have some calico, and a couple of coloured threads.

there’s lots of circles & other textures in the hotel room. the carpet has concentric circles – a bit like the Maori koru shape. I like the red crushed velvet lounge chair in the room too – it has some nice lines and shapes in the shadows

I stitched some more circles and other shapes this weekend
