so–embroidery.

Yeah, if y’all follow me, like, anywhere else, you may have noticed that i’ve been doing some work with embroidery.

Which is absolutely ridiculous because–have y’all met me?  I can’t sit still.  I don’t have the patience for hand-stitching.

THERE’S A REASON WHY I DIDN’T LEARN THIS AS A KID.

But–here I am.  Embroidering.

Slowly.

Agonizingly slow.

Who thought that this was remotely a good idea, because I’m pretty sure it wasn’t me.

I DIDN’T SIGN UP FOR THIS.

But, yeah.  Embroidery.

Here’s what I’ve been (slow, slow, double-super, triple-thick slow) working on.

IDEK, there was these really neat My Little Pony fanart pieces–Yes, My Little Pony.  Don’t judge.–that kinda started this image.

Along with being cracked and part of both The Welcome to Night Vale and Hannibal fandoms.

I’m not sure that’s a good mix?

Especially, when this piece also came out of the same sketching session.

This piece was inspired by this really neat Welcome to Night Vale/Good Morning Desert Bluffs Cecil and Kevin piece.

I–may have gone a little more Kevin than Cecil.

*hands*

Sorry-not-sorry.

I mean, I’m making progress, yeah?

But, the idea is to embroider on things that are not normally embroidered upon:  handmade paper, sketchbook paper, paintings, monoprints.

ALL THE THINGS.

…I may have ideas for embroidery on metal.  Like, as a non-decorative, additive, cold-connection thing like here:

embroidery thread, found object

But, to be, like, the actual piece.

So.  That’s a thing to watch for?

As always, I’ve been doing the writing thing for The Rainbow Hub.

I’m currently reviewing Sleepy Hollow and Agents of SHIELD in addition to my film reviews and the BAMF Women Super-Heroes series.

So, yeah.

Courage.
