This is how my piece is progressing, as promised. I am using the work I showed you last time as a ''reveal'' behind cutwork on silk. I had in mind to maybe make bunting, lots of different triangles strung together. That idea is no more and now I am thinking just go with the flow. In my mind I picture several rectangular pieces, different sizes, joined somehow. This section, well the piece of silk, is around A4 size. The embroidery I showed last time is nearly all gone, cut up and put in here so I may have to make more before this first section is even finished. Guess what? It's not going to be finished any time soon! I'm already thinking edges, I like dangly, textured, you know what I mean, so I made some of these too. I am really excited about this whole piece, the possibilities are endless.
My mood has also probably improved because it's nearly time for me to go on my holidays! Last December we celebrated a special anniversary and this is our big celebration trip, the reason I got a ''real'' job, lots of saving up and scrimping. So, on August 9th, I am off to San Francisco................I really am excited although a little daunted by the distance and the length of travelling time. I just read a blog post from someone who has been to America recently and the magazines she bought! Oh my the magazines! I am going to have to check my luggage allowance again. How much does a suitcase full of magazines wiegh?? If you are in San Francisco can you recommend anywhere for me to visit, embroidery exhibitions or similar and where do I buy glorious magazines???
Last post I got a comment from ''genial'' in Indonesia. I just wanted to say thanks and I have been on your blog and tried so hard to leave you a message but can't, no matter how hard I try, so sorry about that and I will say thankyou here.
Right I'm off, embroidery awaits, see you soon.xxx
