Our houseguest of 2.5 weeks left yesterday. It was both a joy and exhausting! As I try to relax and regroup I find myself instead catching up on my work… the photography, the documentation, the submissions etc. I can rest tomorrow!
One piece I recently finished cannot be publicly shown yet so there is a gap in the latest work section of my website. But this little baby can be shown…Currents #25! I designed this for the SAQA 25th Anniversary Trunk Show from fabric I designed circa 2000. It is hand-dyed, discharged sueded rayon.
As I was stitching this mini 10″ x 7″ piece I was thinking how much I loved it and could not bear to part with it. So I have submitted it as NFS; when it is finished traveling the planet it will return to me. Of course hubby thinks I should make another one, a HUGE one from the same cloth, of which maybe 6 square inches remain.
I suppose I could try to recreate the cloth if I could find my notes on what colors and amount of dye I used. Then again…why go backwards?! If I so desired I could begin anew with something more 2014-ish.
