Cotton fabric, fusible web, batting


Fused raw edge applique, machine stitched

Knots & Tangles

I changed threads often on my long-arm sewing machine for different colors and sheens. Each thread type behaves differently, so adjusting tension between the top thread and bottom bobbin needed extra attention.


I have always liked to doodle, filling up space on any available paper. This is the same action, just different medium. I allowed whatever floated through my mind to come out as stitching without stopping to think about what comes next.
