I'm writing all over my drawings, picking out bit's that work for me and bit's that don't. Adding notes on stitch possibilities and ideas for a piece of work for an exhibition coming up in October in the John Clare cottage/museum in my village. I'm concentrating on the humble weeds that grow in the hedgerows that inspired many of his poems.
Less is definitely more for what I have in mind, I shall start stitching samples on Tuesday during the 'Calico' meeting. Tomorrow I meet up with my two textile friends for our Trident meeting - we are experimenting with soluble fabrics, I may be able to slant my efforts towards this project.
This is my favourite piece so far - wallpaper lining paper with a walnut ink wash, Promarkers and koh i nor paints. I have not finished it because I like the outlines as much as the painted parts. I think these drawings will provide enough resources for a series of work.
Thursday evening I am talking about my work at Beds. Embroidery Guild, mainly about the series of work concerned with time and memory. Definitely out of my comfort zone!
