twined. with feet. and hair. my little basket creature. really, i've just been unsure and lazy, but i like him and so i will keep him like this.
coiled. and lumpy-shaped. ignore that... i like working with this hemp yarn.
clamped. a silk scarf (yes, another. army, remember?). this one isn't finished. i'll be doing more, namely stitching. i think i'll trace the lines from the clamping and fill in the solid shapes, then pull those stitches tight and redye it in another color. should be interesting.
smocked. we have smocking machines at school. they're amazing. i'll take pictures of the contraption sometime. they're pretty cool. and so is this. i just embroidered a section of this very sample and i love it. deep plum. mmmm.
embroidery sample for obama. the colors from his poster. it was half an accident. but since it was jan. 21st, i rolled with it.
french knot sample. reminds me of a party. especially with the silver. love these colors.
