Poppy lace

Closeup Posted by Hello

Not very good photographs because the lace is really difficult to photograph, but this is the poppy piece I have been working on. I slowly disintegrating into meltdown mode, as I struggle to complete all the work I still need to do. I keep on thinking enjoy it , don't panic, it will come together and go away inner critic- just go away! I have played with this process for the last year and a half- have experimented enough to know what will work and what won't but still there are all these nagging doubts. It is so different to the quilts I normally make, and yet it isn't- it is still comprised of three layers, albeit in a slightly different configuration. I have done more printing than I have ever done and the pieces are big- way bigger than my quilts.Back to the drawing board- literally- have to draw the last 2 designs for some more printing I want to do. And then construction.

Fascinating work. I love the colours and transparency combined with the weight of meaning for you in the motifs, plus the variations in technique through the series. I'm looking forward to seeing the pieces "live" next week in Wagga. Good luck for the next few days.
