Any ideas

Well, the last exhibition deliveries are done and I can now refocus on some more creative stuff, (for the next one) ha, ha ! I don't think so, not for while anyway.

While I was looking for suitable pieces to put in the exhibition I came across this half finished sample, as you do, hidden away because you got so far with it and then didn't know what to do in case you spoilt it!

It's a piece of Nuno felt worked on some very fine silk with a water soluble backing. The inspiration came from a shell, which was FME on after the layers of wool tops were felted. I've put some hand stitching on with an idea that this may provide an environment for the shell, but it's not enough and I'm not sure how much more to do.

I've tried scanning the piece and then drawing in the stitches to see where to put them but this doesn't seem to help. I'd really like to finish this piece, because I think it could be quite effective if I could get it right, so any suggestions would be welcome.

I think the stitching is going in the right direction. It reminds me of the atmosphere on some remote scottish island.

It's coming on a treat Sharon, but if you are not sure what to do next, pin it up somewhere where you see it all the time. It won't be long before your Muse comes sneaking up on you .......! Val

No ideas but I think it is coming along beautifully!! Congratulations too on all your wonderful sales at your exhibition. And all those lucky buyers taking home a piece of your beautiful work!
