Embroidered Drawings

I really love the look of freehand machine embroidery. It's naive, but fun and modern too. I've been experimenting doing it on paper on and off the past few weeks, but was never completely happy with the results. A couple of days ago, I unearthed a stack of handmade paper a friend had given me. The texture was great, all fibrous and supple, and I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it.My embroidered drawings are now available in my book shop.

Apol this is very good! I like too freehandsmachine "writing" but it isn´t so easy, I have to practise more, and it´s hard for my neck, but it´s fun!
Here is a link to a piece there I have practise:
