Anyway, the point of this little lecture.....as I was creating the paper work from my last post it reminded me of swaddling bands because of the way I had decorated the paper with strips of technique. So here is the progression from there, sampling a swaddling band. This piece is in it's early stages. The edges are unfinished, it hasn't been damp stretched, I haven't even finished the embroidery yet, but I like it. It is lovely to stitch and reminds me of the effort and hard work I put in to gain the knowledge I have which always informs my work. I feel like I am back at Uni!
I'm not 100% happy with the image quality. It is so dark and rainy and it's late by the time I get home from work. These are the best of about 60 which I took tonight, I did my best!
