This is what I've been working on lately, among other things. I like mixing embroidery with paint on canvas. It's progressing REALLY slowly, though. I've been experimenting a lot with other things in the studio, so when I get restless with this, I try my hand at something else.
I'm feeling a mixture of excitement and frustration with my work. There is so much I want to do yet everything is moving at a snail's pace and not always to my satisfaction. My sewing machine has been in the shop for a couple of weeks and I can't complete a few projects. I'm wondering if I should just buy a whole other machine. But then I get completely confused about what to get when I research the machines.
Hopefully, I don't run out of this crewel thread. I have only one skein and this brand is discontinued. I tried to find more online, but the companies do not answer my emails and they do not pick up the phone. What kind of business is that?
Anyways, maybe I can finish this this week and make some more progress with my other pieces.
