The Feed Dogs

The Feed Dogs

Afternoons passed as I coaxed the diaphanous wisps to approach the needle, only to watch the cranky old machines turn on them, snatching and biting. This won’t hurt a bit, I’d promise and, moments later, have to rescue another gnarled ball of silk from the pit underneath the needle where the ‘feed dogs’ lived.

  2. Thank you, Sinead. That one was actually the last one I did. More to come and a few ideas for a new series of sketches in mind…Stay tuned. 🙂
