I think its finished
but its always hard to tell.
It been quite a slow and painful experience but i think it might be there.
I exhibit with a local art group and this year there has been much discussion about raising the game, moving the group on, the professionalism of the group.
I made it through the selection process but our first exhibition is quite an important one (to us)
I wanted to move my work, to push myself.
I have always used other peoples words but this time I had things I wanted to write
I had a small baby dress I wanted to use within the piece, patched in but still looking like a dress
It's been quite a long and painful process but last night it suddenly looked finished.
I pinned it in a frame to look at today
Yes it was right...
apart from the mucky fingerprints....
this is where it is now
in the washing machine
on a gentle wash
My memory says that I have never had an embroidery whose thread has run.
hmm...never say never...
so I am holding my breath
I don't want this one to be the first.
Is it possible to drink wine while holding your breath?
Thanks for you lovely birthday wishes. I was spoilt on the day but the best is yet to come.
