the linking of hands

Today’s images are from a long, light, layered panel which was originally exhibited as part of the Brunel Broderers Exhibition Curious Drawers in 2010 as part of the festival events from Stroud International Textiles.

These for today are glimpses, facets – caught in the folds.The work is pieced with  drawings of ‘family hands’ from 3 generations, reaching out and interlinking – and some written phrases…

.. and a couple showing details of stitches that join, hold, connect

More to be revealed and unfolded…

Drawing, free machine, hand stitch on cotton organdie

Janet Haigh mentions this piece from a visit to the exhibition – have a lovely browse through Janet’s blog!

And – credits and heartfelt thanks to Kay Swancutt once more for the photos of my work
