It's Sunday today.
Nót that there was much sunshine :
it rained quite a lot the better part of the day
(though in the end the sun really came out)
No it was "Sunday" because I was working on my new
Yesterday I stitched the other half of the sun together.
Today I had to tackle the problem
what I would use as background.
(no, it is definately not going to be part
of the big "Diaries-cloth")
It will stand on it's own.
After a lot of try-outs I decided to use
the funny fabric I dyed with Procion two years ago
It is very loosely woven and there are strips stitched on in swirls.
I initially bought this to use in some felting project,
(but it was still in the drawer)
I placed the sun on quite a big piece
it's about 105 cm wide
There will be a border of very special denim pieces
(from someone else)
I put some other thin blue fabric behind it for more stability
since it's so big
It took a lot of puzzling and deciding about the rest
Of course : some weaving !!!
.... so far, so good ...
I must confess that it doesn't look like a day's work
but in fact it is ...
And on top of that :
the big problem with me is, that when I'm "in the flow" (of creating)
there isn't much attention for anything, or anyone, else ...
(Ahhhhh Man had to wait for his supper,
I totally tend to forget things like that when I'm "busy")
(to be continued)
