Gigglymama is graciously sharing this piece with us. I love the sense of fun with color and shape.
One of the most wonderful benefits of art/craft therapy is the ability to self-soothe. I can certainly imagine the comfort and joy gained working on this piece.
In her words: I took up a random project that I had to get out of my system. It’s horrid, but I like it. I cut up piece of fabric, used excess embroidery floss, drew random shapes all over the fabric, and started stitching it, like a maniac. Yeah, I am a freak. I really want to get a giant embroidery hoop and do another one with well thought out colors and better shapes. I have a thing for colors with memory attached. I used one color in this project that reminded me of my grandparent’s old orange shag carpet.
