In the studio
Wall hanging, mixed fibers; wool, cotton, nylon, lurex, acrylic, hemp, mohair, rayon; with 6 dowels evenly spaced outlining 5 knitted panels. Stockinette with reverse stockinette shapes, size 9 wood needles.
I've got the hanging up on the wall and I stare at it a lot. I've developed the major foreground motif now, which will be a gracefully curving twig with buds. It'll be crocheted on in the manner of tambour embroidery, then embellished like crazy with beads and threads. Yummmeola.
