More Tangled Threads

Here are the newest additions to the Tangled Threads series.
Each piece is hand stitched to a painted canvas. The top piece has french knots embroidered in the center circle. The bottom piece has many stitches radiating from inner circle. I really like the idea of adding subtle texture that will only be noticed once you get up close to the piece.Don't you love the way the threads blend together to make these beautiful colors?
These are are so much fun to make . . . I'm sure I'll be making some more soon.
Have you ever used your leftover tangled threads in a project? If you have, I would love to hear about it.

They look great Judy.
I collect tangled threads too & have used them in various ways. 1 is to mix with PVA glue or bondcrete and either spread over a plastic sheet to make a flat fabric or mold over a bowl or some other shape.
