We have a lot going on and will use them all up... I just got a big surprise seeing so many...there is more under both tables as well.
Bulging with sari's is the only way to describe it...
wearing my new to today....added a wider external facing on the neck- like the look...this is in a lovely soft cotton we get from the wholesaler...think it would be great in our hand spun handloom fabric so will do another sample in that and then had to decide. Love, love , love the handloom though and it embodies all we hold dear so think it will win.
I used to see myself as an artist and work at my practice every day; every breath, every though really...I loved landscape and sense of place and most of my exploration was around that....wanting to do some new cushion covers and wanted to explore some of the designs that arose from my artwork using abilities we have here.... then trying to think of how to present this to our women.
They will follow what I ask, but really for these it would probably look a little flat...I want a sense of movement and nuances to the stitch.
I love black and white at the moment and that is boring around here as well.
I so appreciate the auditors comment about being impressed with our women's engagement with our work....we want that. To have it noticed though really made Praveen and I happy.
then during the 3.00am sleeplessness I thought- how about using Diwali and fireworks as the inspiration? centre the stitch from middle of each piece and designate a palette for them to use and hopefully it will lend a playfulness to the stitch and it will explode out of the cushion cover....happy, happy now.
Bloody generator is running this morning- impacts on Sunday peacefulness but electricity will return soon- I am off to spend the day stitching and working on the next sample for TOCC....love having papu-ji there to do the fiddly stuff like make patterns and stitch samples...I can think of the next idea, draw lists for the workshop TO DO, daydream a bit
Ohhh Sundays :)- enjoy.
Almost feel I should add RIP Australia- new MP and his attitudes are an embarrassment to anyone with heart and any chance for the average bloke in Oz.
