These 4 pieces are stretched over "fat 8's" (8 x 8 inch deep frames). The theme for the Cork Textiles Network exhibition is "Seeing Red". I wanted to play with thread-sketching with a black and white background and free-machine embroidery in red thread. I printed the words 'mo ghra thu' (I love you) as a background on white cotton. Adding wadding to the back, I free-machine quilted my drawings and patterns on top. I added a red border to cover the deep frame.
One of these sold on the opening night, so that was nice!
