Sunday, April 3rd. Sample. Loss, fragility, exile.

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″.
