Thread painting, is it thread sketching or is it drawing with the sewing machine?

I tend to think its thread sketching.
Simply threading the sewing machine and sewing  to create an image.
Its not quite that simple, you know that when you pick up a pen, you can put it on the paper or fabric and draw an image.
Thread sketching is different, you put the fabric or paper under the needle and move it around while the needle punches up and down on the fabric forming a stitch and that stitch becomes a small  part of the image.
Sounds scary and I guess it is when you look at it in that way, but 17 ladies that I admire 
created these masterpieces  over the past 4 days doing just that.

They are not finished and there are more to share but they said I could share them with you.
Im impressed with their efforts.
