Progress

Pretty skewed, isn't it? Maybe I pulled the frame a bit too tight. But it is a pleasant feeling to work on a surface that is firm like a drumhead. I am quite happy with these babyblock colors. I have plans to apply a simple, geometrical pattern in pastel colors on the free space. It has some similarity with a street, I guess. I will use it as a pillow top. Some spots have developed a kind of dish shaped 3-D-effect because the stitches are very close to each other.

this has a real primitive feel. i think what i like about folk textiles is the unevenness and free form it takes. just delightful!

It's coming along just the way it should be: it's energetic and colorful (just like you!)and it looks like a happy piece.

This is so exciting, Eva. Any small portion of it could be a museum piece!
