Susan Brubaker Knapp is quite the stitcher! Check out this piece she is free-stitching on fabric that was clamped and dyed with black to form geometric shapes. I love the freedom of the stitching and the heavy textures too. The parallel running stitches contain the wild organic shapes and carry the color around the piece.
Susan is part of the Fiber Art Options group. They recently open the “Orchids: Sensuality Stitched” exhibit at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in Belmont, NC.

What a lovely and innovative piece of stitchery!

I'm working my way through the luscious collection of your threads - they add such depth and wonder to any piece they are used on. Susan does do lovely work doesn't she?
