in stitches

This week I've been stitching canvases:

First came this one, nothing very different.
It's quite big at 33h x 69w

Then I thought
and began to stitch clothing tags into the next ones:

a diptych, these two measure 34h x 39w and 45w

this almost-square one measures 53h x 49w

a close-up of the tags, now all stitched up.

Today I gesso'd them all, leaving the tags uncovered.
They look interesting now, with the bits of tag colour amid the white field of gesso... how to paint? Same old same old will not do, I think. We'll see what happens.
