Sunday again - how did that happen?
A quick update on Little Elephant, still plodding happily along:
I wanted to take a picture that would show how far along I was, but this is so big that the only way it would work is on the wall outside, and that's just not practical right now, unless I want to show you what Little Elephant would look like soggy. So I have settled for cramming as much of the quilted area as I could into this photo:
The denim carries on too. All I have done this week is add a big patch to the piece I showed last time.
I am thinking a lot about what I am going to do with these pieces now, though I need to keep producing them too. I am wondering about combining them with something else, maybe some bits of vintage blanket (which is to say they are old and I got them from charity shops) or maybe wool suiting (again charity shop). I have some bits of both and don't want to buy new things for this project.
This is proving to be a fascinating project for me. Not only do I have the intended end point to work towards but it is sparking loads of ideas - I may be stitching denim for some time to come, and am becoming mildly obsessed with thoughts of hand-stitching on textiles. It's really quite exciting.
