above us only sky
Usually I plan the pieced back with as much design intent as the front, only simpler.
I like things that seem simple, yet are also complex.
For example, the creten stitch (see here) on the front translates to double lines of small horizontal stitches on the back.
I love the quirkiness and the sensuality of these lines.
My tools are a needle and a small pair of embroidery scissors, my material is miles of thread.
While I've been stitching, life whirls on.
It whirls past.
