If it were possible to be completely intuitive with such a painstaking medium as hand embroidery, I would claim that this piece is. I trusted my thinking hands as they worked with archetypal shapes in the central medallion and through each of the borders. This self-portrait grew from the center. We who stitch are able to enter into a space separate from the rest of the world.
