Yup, still at it with the course, and as usual I am behind. What’s new? Nothing. Except, I now have all the elements of my project in mind; and mostly how I’m going to do it – even to how the elements will fit together.
Just one hold up – roses. In the back of the hanging panel are five roses – from a fertile rosebud of the woman as a bride, through to her blossoming, then in full bloom. The last two are of her fading, with petals falling, and the ‘elderly’, frail and dried flowerhead.
I have pictures of roses, lino printing has been explored, as has appliqué, aqua-bonding and machine-satin stitching. But, really all I want to do is hand stitching. There, I’ve said it. I love holding onto a needle and thread. And, I might just do it by hand. But, the front panels – yum! they are to be hand stitched, aqua-bonded – I just decided!
Thanks for listening to my waffling. x
Next is colour. It will still be gold, yellow and green. Yellow roses mean happiness and joy, I found out.
