Textile Art







I finished my stitching at the weekend and then had fun trying out my images on Dumper.net.
You can upload your art work in gallery frames.

It would be fantastic to work on this grand scale, but I think it would take a few years!
This piece has taken me a couple of weeks and measures approx 23cm x 30cm.
I have included my original sketch for you to see.
I hope to bring you more sketching soon.

No wonder they stand and stare - it's so beautiful!
It has been a delight to see this WIP and more so to see the result,

Beautiful work! The large one sort of scares me though :D
I know of dumpr but I thought it was for real at first - that's a LOT of stitches!!

I really admire your work, and have been following your blog since I found it several months ago. This last piece is full of lovely colours and stitching, but I think my favourites are your smaller trees...but they are all so individually beautiful.

Oh what a hoot. You had me fooled for a minute. Those are my favourite colours. Do you use batting and if so what kind?

Gina said...

What a super piece of work... and wouldn't it look fabulous on that scale!

This piece makes me think of a pond in summer - such beautiful colour combinations.

Hee hee, what a brilliant idea...your embroidery looks fab on that scale. I'd love to work big too(I mean HUGE) but I guess it's only any good in a gallery!

I think you had us all fooled at first. Great work, lots of beautiful threads, colours and textures. This surpasses your usual high standard.

Hello kayla, Your work is awesome and it is amazing how big they can make you work look. I also love to look at your sketch work and see how your stitching turns out from it.

I am going to the Michigan Fiber Festival this Thursday and taking an all day class with a wool artist. I am sooo looking forward to it. Hugs Judy

What a wonderful trick - it had me fooled for a minute. I can't imagine working on such a large scale - it would frighten me to death! This landscape is just delightful.

We have just been to the summer show at the RA,work on a grand scale always commands attention although I have to say that I prefer the miniscule myself.I am sure your work would look good whatever the scale.

Really nice work. It should be in a gallery!

Your thread painting is exquisite.
I got taken for a minute with the huge "painting" in the gallery.
I must give my latest the same showing. Thanks for the tip!!!

Stunning, Kayla, and the fact that it still looks magnificent blown up highlights the fact that this is art. Loved it.

Not sure what you mean kayla - but certainly love the art work. Your colour sense is very good - I love the combinations of blues and greens you use.

Robin Olsen said...

Well it would look fabulous in that large size--what's a few years? (Love the stitching in your header too.)
