Stitching A Story

I've been doing some more stitching. This one has taken me some time - small stitches in snatched moments here and there.

I have no set pattern most times when I start just a general feeling of how things might turn out. This stitching is just an exploration apart from its story I have no set idea or picture as inspiration.

I like to have a 'story' for the things I do. I don't always have one but I really like things that have a story for the person who makes them even though the viewer/user may put their own interpretation on it.


This one is based on a verse in Micah 7 that talks about God throwing our sins into the depths of the sea.
I like to think of the sea being vast so that where I have failed spectacularly there is abundant water to cover my sin.


I like the use of just one colour in stitching - despite the way I dress I do love monochromatic colour in stitching. Sorry about the photo quality I took them at night.

Do you have a story to the things you make?
Are you a make it up as you go along creative?

I LOVE this. What a gorgeous idea and the verse is perfect for it. How good this would look in a frame.

Wow! Amazing Miriam, I really love it and I'm off to find the verse.

Your stitching is really lovely. Are you going to frame it. It certainly deserves a frame. When I first clicked it reminded me of knotty wood.

This is stunning Miriam, even without the story to give it extra depth and meaning.
Wow you've got talent!
