Thought I’d be getting a lot more done than I have, but life does have a way of changing the plan on you!
I’ve been slowly stitching away on my brown wool/scrunched cotton project. It hasn’t told me it’s name yet, so I guess I haven’t established a good enough rapport with it.
Stitch, stitch, stitch…the more I did, the more I thought it needed. And I wanted to get all the hand stitching done before I put the beads on and of course I had to do the machine stitching before beads. I’ve been working on it for so long that I don’t even know anymore if I think it’ll be good.
So, right now I think all the hand stitching I’m going to do is done. I added a layer of batting and did my machine quilting. I’m pretty sure I’m ready to start beading.
When I look at this picture, I think I’m achieving what I set out to do. But I leave interpretation to the viewer…and the beading will help to tell the story.
The detail work makes this one of the most intense pieces I’ve done, and I’m not done yet!
Can’t wait to see if my beading ideas will finish this story. I hope so. But, remember–this is a slow stitching project. Don’t expect results overnight!
Linking up to Off the Wall Friday.
