This month I have been powering through ridiculously time-consuming embroidery projects, clocking eight-hour chunks over and over.
(When Netflix asks if I’m still watching for the third time, I’m allowed to hit yes but have to stop the next time! I love embroidering so much it’s easy for me to overextend and I had tendonitis last year. )
Also I finally got a Swarovski crystal application tool that runs on EU current. It is vicious- it heats up so fast.
My friend Mike, who took this nice picture of me working like a fiend, pointed out that the current here is a BEAST. And of course I have already burned myself with it. I don’t mind, though.
It’s like burning yourself with the glue gun- it helps you know you’re alive!
I decided to try scanning the pieces besides using my pathetic photography “skills” and D’s iPad. The color reads a little cool but I think you can see the details much better. As I’m increasingly doing re-embroidering, going back over every stitch many times with layers of color and metallics, it’s nice to be able to see all the work.
Also I realized it’s time I start signing these on the front, and I’m really happy with how the deco monogram came out!
These embroideries are very beautiful.
Thank you! I am having such a wonderful time with this work.

Do you sell these anywhere online?? They’re so beautiful!
thank you so much Britt! I do sell my embroideries occasionally, but usually only to people who can collect them themselves in Berlin. They take so long compared to my other work, so I have to sell them for quite a lot more than a drawing, and shipping from Berlin is both very expensive and quite unreliable. You are welcome to see what’s available if you’re in Berlin!
