Worked on a little thread stitching over the weekend. Here is a little chickadee poised on a red pencil.
The above is a detail scan. I thought you might like to see it up close and as personal as the computer allows. Each stitch is about 1/8″ long. I would venture to guess in this little 4.5″ x 5″ piece, there are over 50,000 stitches. That means about 12,500 inches of thread (top and bobbin included) or about 1042 feet of thread. If there are 5280 feet in a mile, this unraveled would be almost 2/10ths of a mile. Wow. (I say that with great sarcasm. I was just curious is why I bothered with the calculations.)
Working on a little architecture over the upcoming week.
