Here is today's newest piece. It is yet another of the mid-mod/retro painted pieces done with the scribble stitch that I've been playing with.
This one has the painted osnaberg laying on top of red dye painted batting and then a rectangle of black linen with one painted blue square was laid on top of it. I stitched around all of the blue squares and the black rectangle and the black lines with black thread. Then I stitched all of the background with linen colored thread with a rough angled all over stitch. I stitched the blue circles all over last. They are rough and chunky too.
I really like this piece with the juxtaposition of circles and squares and the way the circles flow over the top of the more rigid/grid like setting of the squares and rectangle. I love the boldness of color and the heavy black rectangle with it's one square.
This whole, little mini series is really turning on my creative mojo!
