Six months and still dreaming ……

What have I been doing? – basically stitching very slowly – the same thing over and over again, hence the lack of posts.  The ground cloth is now fully stitched – here be pics:



These above would be the tree.  These below would be the night sky:



and this is the whole cloth – having stitched the ground I am really not sure about this now – the central figure and the idea of the cloth went with a story journey I participated in but is long since over so the relevance of the figure is questionable in my mind.  I have hung it up to watch and see what, if anything comes to mind.  Seems to me at this point it is only a ground cloth and that a lot more needs to be happening on it.  I have a couple of ideas but will wait a while until messing with it.

    Oh Jill, it’s absolutely exquisite – so much to drink in – colours, textures, movement. It’s the sort of piece I’d want to sit and contemplate – often. I’m beginning to think that something of the pace and thought of the stitching process becomes imprinted in the piece, giving it an aura – I know, sounds terribly new age, but something that spends so much time in your hands, must absorb something of yourself. Love it!

    Loving all that stitch and texture. And the colours are wonderful. Such a lot to look at and consider – I want to touch, lol!!! Am sure you’ll eventually work out what to do next – in the meantime, enjoy just having the cloth hanging around 🙂 It’s a delightful piece…

    I agree with Anny, above! Wow, the cloth has absorbed so much and is so beautiful. I would love to have it around to meditate with it! 🙂 (And a hug to you, dear Jill.)

    Thank you all for your comments – I now recall why blogging is a good idea – you get to see your pieces through others’ eyes – that in and of itself is so helpful – I am seeing the cloth anew after having been so close up to it for so many months .
    Hugs all round 😀

  5. what a beautiful piece, Jill. What size is it? I would love to see it ‘in the flesh’ as I’m sure the photos don’t really do it justice. It’s definitely a piece to sit and contemplate.

    This is simply amazing, such detail, such richness and texture. I’m thinking the figure is a coccoon waiting to emerge – was that the original story? It is just gorgeous as it is and full of meaning.

      In a way that is exactly what the story was about – it got somewhat convoluted, plus I never finished it – perhaps one day – I do prefer stitching. Thank you for such positive feedback.

    You are an artist of amazing patience and skill. Brava!

    Thank you all for your feedback – it is still hanging on my wall, more and more I am seeing it is complete in and of itself – I won’t mess with it – just needs an edging now.
