Cauldron bubbling………

This is turning out to be a truly slow “slow cloth” ….. However, the pure enjoyment and pleasure in the process continues.

The cauldron is now complete:

    I am astounded by the beauty of this piece, Jill. It is artists like you who make me yearn to work with cloth and thread. You are always an inspiration to me.

    Question…is that regular thread, or embroidery floss you’re using? Tell me where to begin! I feel I must explore this medium along with you.

    Can you bottle your patience and sell it to your fellow artists? What a tremendous piece of art!

    ok, i second steph’s question: what size floss are you using? particularly for the top of the cauldron. i am so very tempted to start something in this medium, but i have several projects to finish in felt and yarn. damn the time limits of the day! couldn’t we figure out something to stretch out the days a little? i think the cauldron is perfect.

    This is fantastic, Jill. I’m a very plain sewer, and I am amazed at what artistry can be wrought.

    I have many friends who expresee themselves through quilting. Your storytelling in this piece is magnificent! This is the most amazing cauldron. It looks so different as a whole than it does in detail up close. I can really appreciate the workmanship in the closeups! I need a bottle of that patience, too, please!

    The detailing on this piece is amazing! You know, stories are told by more than words. This speaks volumes!

    “Slow cloth” sounds wonderful and the joy of attention to detail shows in your beautiful cauldron. I’m inspired.

    Wow-I am utterly astounded. How beautiful. So work and craftsmanship.

    I’m always glad that you show the close-ups as well as the big picture because I can then see more clearly all the details of your stitching. I love the overall views too, to provide the map, but the details show more of the amazing pattern and texture you’re weaving into this cloth. Looking forward to the next episode.

    Mmm the close ups of the cauldron stitching are fab, such textural all round gorgeousness! ;o) I should get over more often, this is such a great piece and watching it unfold is so amazing. Excellent work, my friend! ;o)

    Missed this at the time, but want to say how gorgeous it is, all that superb stitching. Wonderful piece, Jill!!!
