backsides are beautiful too

05 Jul

I’ve always loved seeing the back of work. Not those neat tidy “don’t carry floats, don’t use knots” kinds of embroidery and quilting techniques, when someone worries that Gramma Stitch Police Member Emeritus is going to pass judgement, but the ones that are worked as they are needed to be worked. Nobody sees the back of my completed works, so why worry about it?

I have miniscule amounts of embroidery to finish in the top left panel (reversed, it’s the right side top of this photo), the figures to attach  in that open section in the middle (the standing one has two inches left to work), a teeny bit at the bottom of the centre panel, and then i can stretch and mount the whole.

    The backside tells it’s own story.

    For all of us who love and value process, the back is especially beautiful. I’m interested in how your piece will look mounted versus unmounted.

      Me too! I’m sure it’s going to “flatten” some areas, but give more dimension to others because of the tension.
