Even bittier rugs

Ever thought of hooking a 5" by 5" portrait and framing it in a large square frame?  I got the idea from another artist, Daniel Kornrumpf, who works in embroidery.  He creates intricate faces that are really small and then frames them up big.  They look amazing.   His website is HERE.  Go and visit and be ready to be stunned.

Wade.  The Three of Us Series.  2013.  5" by 5".  Designed, dyed and hooked by April D. DeConick

So I decided to give it a try now that I have hooked enough of these small portraits that I am getting the hang of it.  I went smaller last night and in one sitting created this wonderful image of my husband Wade.  I have now mounted it in large square frame, leaving the foundation as a kind of "mat" around it.

I will be doing two more of these, one of me and one of Alexander.  I want to hang them as a group above my mantel.  I am calling it "The Three of Us".
