Week 44 - Autumn foliage at Newstead Abbey, Notts. Dyed scrims embellished onto felt from the back.
Week 45 – Launch of the new Greenpeace Rainbow Warrior. Digitised machine embroidery. Not perfect, but you get the idea.
Week 46 – Rolled up garments, illustrating article about increased prices. Thick wool yarns applied to felt using the embellisher.
Week 47 – “Field of Light” art installation in Bath. Free machined, trailing threads fixed down with Misty Fuse.
Only one more month to do, though it’s a five week one at a busy time… thoughts turn to next year’s project? I enjoyed using bought diaries for my first four years (!) of this, it’s a good challenge to do something you wouldn’t necessarily choose plus I liked being able to look ahead and make notes for future weeks. Using newspaper pictures this year was tougher, but I doubt I can go back to a diary as there’s not much choice of suitable/appealing ones (A5-ish with an illustration for each week) that are different to the ones I’ve done already. Maybe I could take my own photo to use each week? Hmm…
