I set out across the field thinking that a field after maize is a bleak sight, devoid of creative opportunities. …
….and then I started noticing details in the hedgerow
Pussy willow, so magical in the sunshine. This photo was taken with my phone, isn’t it remarkable how technology has moved on in such a short time.
Looking up against the sky, lifted my spirits
My mind translated this picture into stitch: running stitch, fly stitch, couching and French Knots.
With stitching in mind the patterns of trees against the sky and the maize stubble became more intriguing
the mark-making danced in front of me turning into pattern and line
This mix of random shapes, which hold a sort of rhythm is what I am aiming for in my pieces of textile art – I haven’t quite got there yet but now I’m inspired by these images to have another go.
