While sewing today I was belatedly kicking myself for not taking photos of the wedding present I had sewn last August for my dear friend Bruce. Lisa Solomon‘s color chip art:
was my first inspiration for looking at the sewing machine as a big, noisy paintbrush. That, and a conversation over sandwiches with Jen, led me to sew up an abstract thought on Bruce’s upcoming wedding as a gift. But I am not so good about documenting before giving. So instead, here is what thinking about my love of line in art—and getting back to using the sewing machine as a tool—got me today.
Some quick-as-I-can, linen-y experimentation.
