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.”
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
