Embroidered Gloves

This is becoming a signature design of mine; a curving, continuous, meandering line with lots of color.  It reminds me of a dance improvisation that I have taught in my classes for years.  Students are instructed to walk in curving pathways around the space without any sharp turns or stops.  The challenge is to keep moving and cross each others paths smoothly, without bumping into each other.  It is an exercise to increase kinesthetic awareness and can be surprisingly difficult even though it is just plain walking.  It is wonderful to be able to translate my dance experience into embroidery.
