I will never make one of these again!
I remembered saying this to myself after I finished Rising in 2012. Never again was I going to stitch 576 1 x 1 inch squares onto a canvas. I thought of this again as I sat machine stitching around another set of these little squares.
Last weekend, whilst watching the entire 4th season of Downton Abbey, I stitched them to the canvas. This was a last minute change/addition to my series of work for the MELD exhibition.
I have had some potentially serious issues with my shoulder and arm in the last few months, so it was very reassuring to realise that how I have been working in the last few weeks is not causing my body any pain.
Last night I celebrated this with my husband and kids. They have
been felt like they have been ignored for a while now…
