All the Colors Unite

I store all of my thread by color in a storage cart.  In addition to the drawers reserved for each color, I have two other drawers, one for wackadoodle thread that is many colors, and another for leftover thread from projects.  A few months ago, as I made several attempts to close the drawer that holds leftover thread it became apparent that it wasn't going to close.

So I decided to gather up all the threads from recent projects and make this:


I had so much fun making this piece, which is for sale on Etsy, and using up some of my leftover thread.  Like my other zen embroidery projects I randomly selected the colors and relied on repetition to guide me.  I ended up using about 40 different colors, which is the most I've ever used.     

Hopefully it can bring someone as much peace as it gave me to create it!

  1. Could you create "Mass Confusion" for me? I would love to have it hanging in my living room. I do miss you....
