New Work (Finally!): Two Hummingbirds

Our first Viewpoint 9 challenge of cycle 3: Use thread in a new way.

I decided to use embroidery floss and thread for shape and color as well as line. The only fabrics used in these two pieces are for the backgrounds.


Putting these together was incredibly fun.  I will say I experienced a childish JOY while pulling apart embroidery floss and letting it fall down onto the ‘canvas’. Some of the outlining threads were carefully placed, but most were just dropped into squiggly piles.
