New work

Finished today - this is 3.5 metres long so there's no way I could photograph the whole piece. The pic above shows most of it although it's scrunched up at the bottom.
Below: a few detail photos. This is for the WAFTA Naturally exhibition which is on at The Moores Building Fremantle, August 7 - 16. All the work has to be this size, in muted colours and natural fabrics so they should look great all hung in the gallery which was an old warehouse. I hope I'll be able to take some photos of it there.

The fabrics are all various silks and cottons, dyed/printed, most are offcuts and edges saved from previous pieces, which Ive arranged and stitched on soluble vilene 541. Once I was confident they would hold together, the vilene was dissolved, leaving just the fabric and stitching.

I've added a new link to Christine Atkins's new website...she does some fantastic work - hope you'll have a look. Also Sue & Terri of Two Creative Studios are having a great giveaway, all you have to do is register for their newsletter here. They also have free instructions for using soy wax in their latest newsletter.

Well THAT'S pretty cool! Is there anything stabilizing it along the edges or is it just hanging free?

I really like the positive and negative space and the overall length is so perfect for many, many spots in my home!
