This didn't take me very long and it is a first in a series. It will be different islands from my nautical maps. The islands will be places around the tri-state area. This one has many different stitches used to make it including: stem stitch, silk stitch, back stitch, french knot and the use of my sewing machine. Pretty cool huh? I have also included a full size of the flour sack towel its size is 33x38inches and there is a picture of the back of it so you can see now not that messy it is.
I have been an artist my whole life. I have always loved sewing, collage, typography, embroidery and making things pretty. It led me going to college at Pratt Institute and and from there I worked every job imaginable till i found pre-press/graphic design where i am working currently. I hope to one day open up Brooklyn Craft the craft supply store in Brooklyn. A store that's like a craft fair every day. I love sailing and biking and this blog is all about what takes up most of my time, unless of course I am drinking at the bar.
