Melanie Ciccone’s two embroideries on tea-stained squares of linen are quiet, little heartaches. One bears a loose scatter of stitched, colored lines and the other a constellation of sewn dots in white, blue, flamingo. Against the shroud-like, stained fabric, the markings read as intimate maps, notations literally stitched into memory.
