I just mentioned this image on the Brunel Broderers blog
Rich dialogue as usual between us whilst working – this was what I was stitching
Kay mentions our meeting on her own blog – here
One of the topics was about artist’s pre-occupations, fascinations – when did these begin, was it in childhood or beyond, and what connections do we make and notice?
I have been sorting out my studio and delving into collections, sketchbooks, samples and found a photo I took a few years ago which reminded me of my recent kantha work…
Small stitches holding together and forming a new cloth – thin fine soft layers and scraps become one..
..watching the ripples forming as the patterns of stitch grow…
‘love is in the air’ – french knots lightly giving enough to read the text at a second look
So busy absorbed in making these that I forgot to take pictures! The sun shone so warm and brightly on the rich pinks and reds that interestingly the rippling patterns are clearer than the stitches and threads!
