It’s time to start
worrying 😉 thinking about other work, time to move away from blue.
Funny how an artist’s sketches become a form of shorthand–no one else understands the signals, signs and runes. I can see in my head how these little thumbnails would look, i can imagine the effect certain stitches and specific techniques would have. I can even feel the texture. Over on my work blog, there’s a long post with notes and random thoughts, observations and what if’s abounding. Since June will be residency at ACAD again, i have been planning what i will do there, or rather, planning as much as natural marks and processes will allow the maker to assume! And as much as i love my hand stitch, i want to incorporate some machine back in, either as a base, or as accent, making the two meld together. FrankenStitch can and originally, way back in 2009 when i started it, DID combine both processes.
With what i have learned specifically in the past two (?) years from my dear friend Karin Millson, it’s time to rev up “Lalage”, my temperamental sewing machine.
