A Teaser

Preparing my work for shows
I thought I'd give you a peek at what I'm up to these days.
As I mentioned in this post here. I'll be in a show. 
I've been stitching my hand-embroidered maps onto 1/2" thick 100% wool felt.
The felt block will be surrounded by a deep frame with no cover (i.e. no plex or glass) 
I want the viewer to be able to really enjoy the stitches.
I'll share more later this month.

I draw maps of places I've been. 
This one is stitched onto vintage table linen. Then I stitched the linen onto 1/2" wool felt.


  1. I am happy to see your work on your blog. I will await patiently your announcement of when and where your work will be on display. This will call for a road trip.

  2. truly gorgeous stuff.
    simple complexity, if that's possible.

    one of these days we may have to organise a group show...there are a few of us about who map, one way or another
    might be fun to fill a space together...

  3. Thank you for your kind comments.
    India, I'd be in heaven to show my work along side yours.

  4. such controlled quiet in your mark making. i enjoy.

  5. How wonderful to see what you are working on! I can't wait to see a more detailed image and at some point the real thing. Using the felt as a backing is an elegant idea.

  6. Been meaning to comment on this - love love this work. Looking forward to seeing more.


I always enjoy reading comments!
