At last some time spent working on the "Coastline" piece.
Had lunch and a business meeting last week with the group Fusation.
Realised how little time I had before the exhibition. I was planning to use a piece of acrylic to back the piece but so far had been unable to get it cut. The Potter who was hosting the lunch is having a new studio built ( envious ) Lovely worker said he would cut it for me. Back home, no excuses, got started.
I have used strong tape to hold the fleece in place then I will lace the back to stretch the work. This thin fleece is ideal as a backing.
Coming together at last.
Add the "fences" and backing. End in sight.
Feel a sense of relief as does the work. It was afraid it was being packed, in pieces, in a brown box.
I did not present any work to be juried for this exhibition. Caught up with house hunting and packing. I will be stewarding on the 20th 2.00/ 6.00. If you are around please look in. The biggest textile exhibition this year. Not to be missed.
Saying goodbye to my garden.
