Collage finished–almost!

When I sat down in front of the TV to watch a little football last night, I really thought I’d be able to finish the stitching on this collage.

Simple stitching–won’t take long–maybe even get two done——not so much! It always takes longer than I think and I also add more stitching than I originally plan, too.

Almost done, though, and I’ll mount it on a canvas.

Put paint on the larger one I did in the workshop, too. I think it’s ready to stitch, but I’ll take another look at it in the studio before I bring it up for ‘in front of the TV work’.

Hmmmm…as I was working on it, I liked it. Now I’m not so sure. Collage is very busy work, isn’t it.

Found a scrap basket with trimmings from other quilts and thought I’d try to collage them together. Started with this black piece and a floral, and some couched yarn.

It might be all right, but it needs more work. This next one needs lots more work, but has possibilities.

I’m thinking that a narrow strip of another color between strips might be nice. And it might be more trouble than it’s worth and I throw those other bits away without any ‘scrap-lover’s guilt’.

I think I’m packed for teaching in Dallas. If I look around and think about it, there is always something more, but I don’t really need anything else…I think!

Oh–maybe I should think about a suitcase for clothes, too!

    • I will definitely give you a call–and even bring some of this stuff for your wonderful critique, if you are up to it!

  1. I’m really liking the direction your collage pieces are going……..the understated stitching is just right! Safe travels…..enjoy…’s always such a privilege to lead a workshop…..I miss it terribly!!


    • I’m having so much fun with these collages! Not going to abandon anything I usually do, but it’s good, very refreshing, to try other styles. Just when I think I want to be retired from travel teaching, I get another offer I can’t resist! You may need to do a couple of workshops every year, just to feed that love of teaching!
