I've been taking things from the house to the shudio this afternoon, and suddenly, it doesn't look quite so big! And there's an 8ft table coming tomorrow, too, so that'll take up a bit of space... But it's still much less cramped than my current studio, so I'm really not complaining. Not a bit!
Moving, too, in terms of my work. I rarely stitch by hand, but this piece has quite a bit of hand stitching. It's nearly finished, and is made from evolon that has been transfer dyed, then machine stitched; I'm now adding the final few hand stitches. I didn't add a backing to the (polyester) batting, and the stitching looks wonderful. I'm intending now to either transfer dye it or paint it, or possibly both; I think it'll be interesting. The image is a detail shot; the piece is called 'Circus'. See what you think.
