Down Experiment Lane.

I am still on the road of experimentation. I am gathering bits and pieces together, recycling pieces of work and fabric as well as my much loved felt.
I liked the piece below so much that I have replaced it as my header on the blog; as you can see the close ups are quite rich, as usual just click on them for a large view.

I do think it came as a discovery of the stitch doodles and I am not sure where it will lead me. I see them as freehand samplers. The original ATC sized stitch doodles I have sewn together as book for my use as a reminder of what is possible so it's actually a stitch book; perhaps I will show
this next time. It is working very well for me.

I am enjoying the freedom that it is allowing me. The idea though is to use the work as a reference in my future work; Perhaps allowing me some ideas when I work upon less abstract piece in the future. I am searching for a language in stitch colour and fabric; a language of my own I hope.
Obviously, to use this language in the future will also take much exploration but I feel sure that it is a path I should be following.
