Natural Harmony in Progress on sewing machine

As with all my work
* I do not use computers
* I do not use projectors
* I do not use photography or printers
* I do not draw on the canvas with anything but the thread
* I do not use paint on the canvas
* I do not use appliqué
* I do not use hoops
* I do not use zigzag
* I do not use dissolvable fabrics
It is just me moving the canvas under a simple sewing machine as one would sketch by moving pencil over paper
