The waiting is over
At last he is finished, except for his eyes.
A bit of an anti climax really.
He sits there looking quite ordinary.
No indication of the difficulties I have experienced trying to make him. Trying to find a seagull, taking photos and all the delaying tactics I used. I knew he would be difficult to make and give me lots of problems to solve. He did.
Wished at one point I could carve with wood as thought that might be an easier option. It would have presented its own series of problems, I suspect.
I am pleased with the way he sits in his place and have promised him I will fix his eyes.
What do you think?
Next decision is what background will I give him.
One of my photos?
One of my drawings?
It is always about the correct decision.
The seagull has brought the cabinet together.
From the discovery that the cabinet had been made in the wrong size, till here we are almost finished. I would like to find a shell stencil or stamp. Normally I
make my own but have not been happy with the results so far.
A few more postcards to be stitched.
"Coastline" needs to be ready to be juried on the 10th December as I am hoping he will be in an exhibition in January.
3rd piece of work in the "Coastline" series is started
I planned to make the 3 pieces the same size but this one had other ideas and is slightly longer,
Still to be stitched but should be finished for the deadline 10th December.
Plan for next week
1 Finish bits and bobs for Cabinet
2 Finish Debris
3 Think about presentation for Seaweed, Seaglass
Big Big sighs of relief. The Seagull is made
