Would you like a giant Donut with your coffee?
I'll bring the donuts to the morning meeting! This is my newly finished piece from my residency at the Neville Public Museum. I have been experimenting with stitching around different forms. I tend to use a lot of fiber fill to stuff things and have been searching for new ways to create puffy confections. During one of my department store material search strolls, I came upon the summer section. Inflatables! Tubes, balls, those arm things you put on kids so their arms float... GLORIOUS! So now I have all these great inflatable forms that not only make great donuts, but also weigh a lot less than the stuffed forms! I am super excited to experiment more with this idea and have started to stitch over an enormous beach ball. More photos to come soon. Meanwhile, Homer Simpson, stay away from my Donut!
