Who can believe this??? I was at an art party/musical event with my sewing machine, and got tired of what I was doing. I decided on the spot to do freehand contour “drawings” of the musicians (who were not posing but moving all over the room) with colorful variegated thread on my sewing machine. I liked the results a lot, and ended up embellishing the drawings with colored backgrounds, and printing guitars with a linoleum block that I cut. I put the pieces together on an old tie-dyed sarong.
