Dreams of India full lenth
Well it's all done & delivered today in it's padded bag. This isn't a great photo but hopefully it gives an idea of the whole piece.
The photo below is a close-up view of the hanging rod.
Today also, another pleasant day at the Embroiderers' Guild. Our group, Innovative Stitches, had a workshop on Italian corded Trapunto quilting where we used photocopies of the designs on Beardman jugs from the Batavia shipwreck to create a linear design for a quilting sample. Most of us did hand stitching but I think I'll do a machine one too. Much quicker! Hopefully I'll eventually get these finished & post a photo.
The group is working towards an exhibition next year on the theme of WA's historical shipwrecks and we're each making a visual diary or journal with all the sample pieces we do from each meeting. As I was a late starter with the group I'll have to get moving on this soon.
Saw a couple of great exhibitions in the past week, the Year 12 Perspectives at the WA art Gallery & a textile exhibition on the theme of WA's native flora by Pam Annesley, Loralie Smit & Dianna Vincent.
