Stitch and Surface inspiration

I've been working on Stitch and Surface stuff for the summer course. Every session is different but I always like to have some kind of sampler, some kind of surface design technique, a fabric collage or other embroidered image/painting, and sometimes a functional project. Summer session is only 6 weeks, so it's hard to squeeze a lot in. The class is full now, but here's a sneak peek of some project idea inspirations I have stirring: Doodle Sampler (see previous post) This is from Jacquelynn Davis on Flickr who does amazing doodle embroideries!!
Stitch Shibori/embroideries. We'll dye our fabrics and then use them in an embroidered image. Check out this website for some great shibori technique images.
Chair embroidery, perhaps an upholstered piece, camping chair, cushion, or slipcover. I'm hoping some students will want to participate in "A Place at the Table" project the WCA is creating for the September Live Arts/Fringe festival for which we're creating art chairs. The above image is from Sampler-Culture Clash.
