Textile Art in the Garden

It is my day 53 in the #100 Days of Making Project. I say ‘my’ day 53, because the A* people are on day 63. This ten day gap has opened up and revealed secret thought processes (once I got over berating myself !) Thought processes that have been running the show for the longest time and that have contributed to major procrastination issues. I’m amazed really, that it’s taken so long for me to see this and I’m amazed at being held hostage for so long too.

This is all good, because now I know what I’m dealing with.

Thank you…

The studio wall gets busy as I try out ideas. Cloth that is not included in my current project, speaks to me from here.

I like to try out variations and see the outcome of adding or subtracting shapes.

I  take pictures as a record of process and also it helps to have an objective eye

I joined in a quilt project just before Christmas last year, the emphasis on using recycled materials, and Florence Nightingale as inspiration. We visited the Florence Nightingale Museum , the venue for the quilt exhibition, and had an interesting talk by artist Susan Stockwell. We were asked to produce a 20cm square and there are many and varied interpretations. This is the beginning of mine.
