I have been adding to my cloth with more running stitch. It has been a slow task as I have been busy with other things - run off my feet one could say :-)
I have been preparing for another garden art workshop at Azures Den on the 16th May and we will be making a moon maiden. Above is a photo of Io (named after a moon of Jupiter) . I have also made a faceless version for those a little intimidated by the thought of putting a face into their work.
I have had a happy time introducing a new student to fabric sculptures over the the last 3 weeks. Wei was a lovely student with a visual arts background looking for something different to do. We made a siting lady, a tall elegant stuaue and a bird with some chicks. I felt a bit in awe as I went to her house and was surrounded by her wonderful art on the walls. We had fun and Wei made me think outside the square a little with how she went about creating her statues and ideas she had on the way. I am sure I learnt as from form her as she did from me, Thanks Wei.
I also met with my stitching mates at the Embroiderers Guild last Saturday - I got heaps of stitching done on my cloth then and chatted and shared. I have it linked it here so you can see some of our show and tell from March.
