A bit late, but here is the sample piece for the joining edges exercise, for which I promised a photo. I am trying to express loss, fragility, exile. Tea-stained polycotton, sewn with loose baseball stitch which varies in width, thus forming loops when the edges are drawn closer together. I used white sewing cotton, but also pulled out some of the thread from a darkly stained piece of cotton and used that to sew back in to the fabric (works very well) . If the exercise was repeated I would make the strips less regular in width, and make some tears on their surface (still could), together with extra stitching. Ideally I would photograph the whole piece hanging up outside, in good weather and natural light, rather than draped on our communal staircase! 11″ x 40″.
