Recent embroidery

The top images are just a little embroidery using scraps from hemmed skirts and some quilting fabric leftover from making bookcovers, the idea I guess is a kind of automated quilting on an intimate scale, I'm not too sure where I'll be going with that one.
The below images are of a little segment of knitted baby wool that I've half hazardly embroidered, just thinking about different ways to acknowledge the significance of the struggle for autonomy within modern intimacy- a strong theme within my work, the idea of technology creating abbreviated ways of what used to be heartfelt, hand-written letters now evolved into abbreviated and disjointed text messages is kind of hilarous and very much sad.
