Right now you are all here to find out what on earth I am talking about aren’t you!
I want to and have wanted to for sometime make a piece, a piece that shows what I can do that combines my skills (lets hope there is some talent somewhere).
This is an idea that has been brewing, it has changed and been added to and it will likely change again.
As we stand (April 2010) it is:
Knitted afghan/patchwork back including cables, textures and colour work
A (sewn) patchwork front
A central panel of cross stitch with my name and completion date etc (this is WIP see cross stitch)
With the cross stitch edged with lace
Potential additions may be: lace figures on patchwork and/or some applique.
I know this is going to be a long project and my lace skills need repairing and my patchwork knowledge has not even begun but it is something I really want to do. I am setting myself a really generous target on this one on the basis that I don’t want this to be the only thing I have on the go as a whole project.
My target 5 years!
