In her ongoing series of stitched illustration and textile art, Sam P Gibson painstakingly hand-embroiders the most stunning threaded eyes, so they look as though they have been drawn onto a sheet of paper instead of created with a needle and thread.
“My stitched illustrations are developed from a desire to move away from regular embroidery and explore other subject matter within this medium,” Sam explains. “I had been taught to sew as a child and had continued to enjoy the labour intensive aspect of hand embroidery but wanted to move my work into a more drawing based direction.”
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
