Chapter 3 Revisited

A few more embroidered strip samples.  The top sample uses thick embroidery thread in the bobbin and  ordinary machine thread on top, but this time I've stitched a phrase from a poem  which was one of my inspirations.  The wave patterns create simple fish outlines.

And below are both sides of another strip.  First the underside created by stitching back and forth in columns, below the columns are stitched in thick embroidery thread interspersed with metallic thread.
The underside is more effective, almost like a drawing of ripples on water.
