Today I was mainly working on Sunrise, which was inspired by one of Grumpy’s jackets. I am fond of the shade.
A lot of my sewing is actually frame making for the very small bits of carpet that I make by hand. The frames seem to be going through a fairly elaborate phase right now. I am not sure if Grumpy has brought out the baroque in me, but I am putting a lot of juice into this.
Anyway, Sunrise was looking pretty unpreposessing the last time Grumpy saw it. I am not usually fond of yellow, but this is a good exercise. I do not think it will be of practical use for anything apart from staring at. I often find that the less thinking and the more sewing, the more interesting the result.
I have ordered the stuffing, and most of the cushions are ready for the carpet magic to happen, even if a bit more stitching will be relevant after the carpet is in place. Then I will worry about the sides once I am happy with the images.
I may get the opportunity on Monday of finding out if Haram Bawbag can be removed from the studio as a very old friend got in touch. Probably safer with two creatives attempting the near impossible.
Once it is suitable weather, a lot of resin work will recommence, and there are three or four pieces of resin work ready to release so that I can get some workspace back.
I am too scared to ask where Grumpy is, but he is away a lot, so not terribly worried. Concentrating on saying a lot with a few sweeps of sewing.
