Another, and different, design

Having a go at the modernist abstract. The thin crossways lines are how big the sections would appear in the frame, one at a time. I have the cloth in the frame (putting it in was a job). I'll draw the pattern on freehand because I'm tired of trying to figure out how big to print it, converting pixels into inches and so on. Then mailing it to myself, downloading to the other computer, opening in Irfanview and printing on the laser printer, and finally tracing it.The pulled-work on burlap…See More

I don't know how this would work out for pulled thread, but I like it. I got the amoeba-looking parts by staring at a blank screen and drawing around the shapes that appeared on it. Somewhat like seeing pictures in the random dots on a popcorn ceiling, or the lines and splotches in marble. When the shapes appear to be real things, such as faces, it's called pareidolia. I don't know what you'd call seeing coherent, but random, shapes like this.…See More

Just "sewed muslin," which is different."Embroidered lace" talks about embroidery on various net materials.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitework_embroidery includes drawn thread and cutwork, but not pulled thread.It…See More
