Girl, City Garden and something else are in pieces all over the house, all in warm colours, vying for attention and not knowing who they belong to. I thought they were for specific projects but they’ve been moving around, claiming territory in each other’s acreage and for that mystery third piece. I’ve separated things out in project boxes, but because several of them are being used as demo pieces for the FrankenStitch class, they have minds of their own as to where they “should” be.
I’m rethinking layouts and size, and maybe some of these chunks are going to be, supposed to be, on their own.
And oh what this rainy October, age and intensified stitching have done to my left thumb! I bashed it many years ago on Bowen Island chopping wood: the maul slipped and so did the log and landed right on it, fracturing it. Since then in times of stress or damp, it sets itself on fire. I’ll have to coddle the poor thing today, wrapped in soft little blankies and sung to sleep with a little lullaby……
Also wanted to say, my FrankenStitch students are an amazing lot, diverse and innovative! It’s interesting to see how others are approaching the “style” with colour choice, fabrics and module design. Teaching the class is allowing me to be more creative as well! I’m trying new applications of my basic FS stitches and new looks for them. Thank you my students! I hope to use many of these new ideas on my “Waterworks” piece for the 2012 FAN exhibit in North Battleford, Saskatchewan.:) BEAUTIFUL gallery!!!!!! And nope, you haven’t seen any of it yet, because it’s still in the Stew Stage:)
