June Stitching


My blog updates have been less frequent due to the amount of stitching I have, but the good news is I'm on my finale piece for the exhibition!
Yesterday I spent the morning at The Herbert Art Gallery going through the work I will be exhibiting, checking measurements, how it will be displayed and lots of paper work.
There is so much work that goes on behind the scenes prior to an exhibition with many decisions to be made.
I have included a range of  paintings and drawings which are the starting point of my textile pieces and you will also be able to see some of my sketch books.
The piece above is a section from my piece titled 'The Magic Oak Tree'.

That is a beautiful piece you are working on,
I had a bit of trouble with your blog as soon as I clicked on my link to your blog it opens and then takes me straight to a webring called bloggers who embellish but it opens someone else page. Don't know if that is just me or if there is aproblem with your blog.

Love the moodiness of this close up--like a spring storm. "Embroidery" is hard to find over here, but I finally located a copy at one of the art colleges and your article is wonderful!
