Since this is my first post on this page, I thought I would start it off with my most recent piece. I actually just finished it today.
For anyone that watches Doctor Who, you will know exactly who this is. That’s not what I want to focus on with this piece though, and honestly, focus may be the wrong word for this. Instead of getting closer, let’s take a step back, because to truly appreciate this stitching, you really do need to view it from more of a distance.
See what a change of perspective can do? It looks good up close, but something about it is just a little odd. Maybe it’s the empty spots in the stitching, or the fact that you can clearly see each stitch. Whatever it is, when I look at it up close, it bothers me a bit. Then I hold it out, or take a few steps back, and everything sort of comes together. What was a bunch of colored thread suddenly turns into a portrait… no, a work of art. Sometimes a slight change of perspective is all that’s needed.
