I started emboidering a few years ago. Generally, I do this or one of a couple other things (origami, doodling) during the last hour or so of the day. Too tired to think, just something to occupy my hands. Over the last couple years, the embroidery projects have been what has most occupied my hands. The thing I like most about it is that the aesthetic and conceptual ideas can be settled on in a relatively short period. Actually bringing the ideas to fruition takes much longer in the scale of things. The work tends to eveolve as they progress, too. It's not as apparent in the above pieces. These really are eye candy; made solely for the purpose of delighting the eye.
