I've completed two stitched messes, 4-inch (unconventional ;) embroidery art framed in hoops and ready to hang.

I started saving little scraps of embroidery thread that were too short to stitch with, they look so pretty in a pile together! I couldn't throw them away. (call me insane. ;) But it turns out they have a higher purpose, I've stitched them together onto fabric to be preserved in their disheveled form as art, as a reminder that trash can be treasure, beauty can come from unlikely places.
