thread play

thread play

Sometimes I just like to be in my studio and do something silly. I have quite a lot of embroidery floss, which I never really use. I had them sorted by colour in boxes and thought it might be a fun idea to knot them all together, by colour, and wind them into these lovely and tactile bullets.

Although they’re lovely little pieces and I could leave them like this, it seemed a shame that most of the threads would remain hidden inside. So what I did next was to blend all the threads and wind them onto these cylinders.

Again, they’re lovely little pieces as such, but as the next step I’ll probably be using the threads for weaving.
