is complete! I am more than happy with how it has turned out – when piecing with small irregularly shaped bits of fabric it is difficult to really ‘see’ the whole. It is hanging on my wall again and I am delighted – really, really chuffed!
From a little distance:
I am sure you can get the overall feel of the piece from these pics – the colours are much richer in fact but the light is not good.
Whilst I sit admiring this, smiling to myself and wondering where I shall go next with it, downstairs the eucalyptus pot now contains three cotton bundles which have been cooking all morning . I have turned off the heat and will leave them to steep for, well , days probably – until I see some change in colour.
I am taking part in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) which begins tomorrow. I have no intention of writing a novel but am treating it much as the Get Your Art On Month, in that I hope taking part will encourage me to write every day. I do intend to write about the character/s and place/s in Willow’s ‘story’ but in a totally stream of consciousness manner, no censoring, no editing. Once the month is over I shall then go back through it all and see if there is anything of use ;)! The aim is to write 50,000 words in total by the end of the month – that equates to almost 1700 words a day – no idea what that looks like but sounds a lot. Eh well, I shall do what I do and I shall, above all else, enjoy!
