Still on a quest for long, slow projects. Using a hunk of wool for yesterday’s start made me look through the wool I’ve recently felted and dyed. I have a beautiful multi colored piece that I thought I wanted to keep all in one piece. But today, it spoke differently.
I blocked off a section and cut it out of the middle!
Then I cropped it a little bit more…oops! I found that I had cut too much off of the top edge, but I’m going with what I have. I’m sure it will work out fine. So…I learned from asking Mary Stori that yes, indeed, I should use an interfacing with wool. Here we have it interfaced and trimmed, ready for stitching.
Details of each side and as I say that, I’m wondering if I may end up cutting this in two pieces before it’s all said and done. It’s about 20 x 40 and it may not stay that large.
Again, a nice, big, slow hand stitching project. I’m soooo looking forward to taking forever to work on a single project.
I’m sure there will be other projects going on at the same time, but the easy stitching times will be great…no matter which direction the piece ends up taking.
