It's been a bit of a marathon week- I am determined to try and keep to my promises I made to myself- there have been a few steps forward and a few back but this is what I managed to get done this week:
1xThe Earth Sentinelle- full size piece
2 x lutradur machine stitched Sentinelles
1 x hand stitched sentinelle
3 x teapot and rosewater jugs series
1x article for Downunder Textiles- an Australian magazine I have been writing for lately
I attended school all week.
A few past midnight nights ( not common for me). So all in all I used 6 kilometres of thread this week on my domestic sewing machine- and my back is feeling it!
And I finished the catalogue- now I am waiting with bated breath what the cost of printing of it will be. I hope I can afford it as this has been a challenging year.I do have my doubts whether a catalogue would be interesting enough- but I have so often though of a catalogue of some of my own work and have always fallen by the way side. Now I do actually have the skills ( with a bit of help from my teachers) to be able to do such a thing. The catalogue will be 28 pages in full colour- explaining and highlighting my sentinelles.
Don't forget there is still time to enrol into the on-line Travellers' Blanket Class- if you have a penchant for hand stitching and want to spend some time doing it over summer or winter ( depending on where you are ) this is the workshop for you! The class will start on 19 November .If you are interested just email me.
