Creative Cue:Stem

The word for the past week's Creative Cue was "stem". Since I like working from my garden, I immediately decided to do a sketch of some dried up stems of last year's garden. But somehow, I just couldn't get started. And then all of the sudden, on Thursday, an image of a bicycle wheel popped into my head. My sketch is part of a wheel, complete with valve stem.


Like all my sketches for this series, this was done with a free-motion technique on my sewing machine, in black thread.

Yesterday was our first sunny day in I don't know how long. The buns really enjoyed it. 


They followed the sun across the room and back, all day long. Like a rabbit sun dial. Here's to another sunny day today, for us, and for you also.

Karen,
I love your thread sketches! You nailed "stem"!

Your bicycly valve stem is very clever and one I did not think of. I am intrigued with your free motion threadwork. Well done. Very sweet bunnies enjoying the sun.

Bunns Luv Sunn!!!

You did that on a Sewing Machine? Most of us couldn't even do it with a pencil and paper in 28 trys!!! WoW!

Great "sketch" -- that's one I hadn't thought of!
