There’s something you need to know about slow art…
… it doesn’t like to be rushed.
Preparations are going on at as fast a pace as I can manage for Discover.
I’m going to be showing a selection of my large stitched tapestries at Ivinghoe, and in addition, I’ll be introducing two new stitched triptychs.
You’ll notice that spirals feature – yet again.
I’ve been enormously happy recently to find a new supplier of hand-dyed silks. People keep asking me if want to try dying myself, and of course there is a part of me that is very interested, but there are only so many hours in a day and I use most of them for stitching – so when I discover someone already creating exquisite yarns, I’m just delighted to try them out.
There’s quite a lot of the new silk worked into the blue triptych, which is providing a gorgeous sheen that I find both lovely to look at and which feels beautiful too.
I’m sure I’m not the only person who gets a thrill from the sensation of stitching with silk – and it’s definitely not something you’d want to hurry…
