drawing and painting with thread

I'm using two stitches and three weights of cotton thread to render this image of my black dress on a large piece of wool fabric.

With these threads I make evident some of the complex relations between myself and my world that are incommunicable with words. Textile art is process but it is also stuff and this method of mark making is deliberately low tech.
I am a moving thread that is becoming.
I am not who I already think I am.
