Today I went back to the joining exercises, and think this one probably covers the requirements for putting together items with irregular edges, and exploring their overlaps.  This was incredibly fiddly, but worth it in the end when photographed in the dark, attached to a spotlight, with my mobile phone torch shining on the petals from underneath.  Although it was a stitching exercise it has developed into inspiration for the chrysalis project I am contemplating for the final piece in this course.  The rose petal shapes have taken away the temptation to follow the patterns of a biological chrysalis and suggest shapes which are a little more fantastic (as in fantasy ..).
