In the summer of 2019, I discovered HOW to make embroidery stand-up! My primary training is in sculpture and I am most comfortable working in three dimensional space.  This piece is an “upscaling” of a small spiral I stitched while at the cold, rocky shores of Lake Superior. It can be arranged as you desire.
