I have just come home from a fantastic week away with my friends in the Txt.tiles 21 Group (at last I have the group title spelt correctly - so that people don''t think I belong to the north England group Textile 21!!). We spent a week at the Kingcombe centre ( see Maggie Grey's blog here too). Being with my friends, with no job to rush off for, no cooking or household chores I always work really well. We had very suitable weather (rain when inside and sun for the bbq), fantastic food and a really good laugh. To show you a bit of the work I did - On the left is the jacket back when I went to Kingcombe - on the right is the finished back -
I stitched the silver panels, added more spirals to the purple panel, added pink and blue panels (below as a work in progress) to the top and did the two long gold side panels. I made a cord for the back lacing.
When sitting out in the sun I did some hand stitching on the White Rabbit's Pocket watch - I mounted it over hardboard, covered the back with rusted fabric and stitched cord around the edges of the main watch - still need to finish it off and join the front case on.
