Still connected to the wider world. Have been considering, should I invest in some carrier pigeons, as a back up.A 6inch piece of corroded wire was the cause but the problem was B.T.
9 patches. Do you remember these?
Working the individual patches, keeping in mind I would like this to work as a whole piece as well as separate squares.
They will be backed onto these artist boards.
Have settled on the name "FINDINGS"
Some of my findings.
Tapestry I have been advised I am stitching it all wrong. There are rules. One is supposed to go back and forth in straight lines and it really should be in a frame. I never use a frame as I like to feel the fabric I am stitching. I used this same working practice to do tent stitch. Broke the rules. I am stitching wherever I fancy. Another rule broken.
A little pink thread.
A little green thread
Horrors I have broken the rules.
If I have a piece of pink left in my needle I move to another pink bit to finished off. More rules broken.
So glad I have my own work and I can break all the rules I want and usually do.
The tapestry is worked for my pleasure and I would never claim to be an expert. I am enjoying working it in my own way.
Plan for next week
1 Finish more squares, at least 3.
2 Think about displaying
3 Visit Kalamkari exhibition again.
Look in on Sunday and see if I have achieved any of above.
