line drawing in stitch

i have been working on stitching some of my line drawings of everyday life. here is a sketch of BH and me having lunch last year in a park when we were living in portland, maine. BH is eating his usual lunch time hotdog and i am having vegan food from little lads.

while i was working on this piece i discovered a kindred stitching spirit in the work of Iviva Olenick.

Thanks for visiting my blog and your comments. I've really enjoyed looking at your blog - your course sounds exciting and I love your slop sink piece.

I've also been investigating your links - your tutor's work and Ivivas - amazing. I wonder if you might also like Maira Kalman's Embroidery - see some here: http://www.saulgallery.com/chronicle/kalman_embroideries.html
