Spool of Thread with Needle
Oil on Canvas Board, 6" x 6" - SOLD
This little painting celebrates my love for sewing. For many years I made a living by designing and fabricating hand-dyed silk clothing. I've also sewn a stack of quilts. Pulling thread through fabric has always given me comfort - because of its slow steady rhythm and its connection to the women who create both everyday and extraordinary art with needle and thread.

"fun painting!" Jeannie
"Your painting reminds us “girls” of our shared love for sewing. My mother makes needlepoint, my sister can make anything on the sewing machine and I quilt. Thank you." S. Hanson, KS
