Finally able to start stitching in silks, all the drafting, tacking and marking out is finished.
So many things have conspired against me, its almost funny.
This is the part I’ve been working on today.
Woven silks in fuchsia (what else for India?)
Printed using a carved block (also from India).
A sick child at home for three days has seriously rearranged my timetable.
And my place of work. Back to the kitchen table.
You can just see the beautiful orchid in the background.
It was a lovely present (thanks Paula if you are reading!) and its the most stunning flower I’ve ever seen.
The colours are perfect for being Inspired by India!
In later posts you’ll see how the orchid is even more perfect. White/cream and copper colours coming soon!
If you are wondering about the deadline and details the piece is being created for a challenge by the luxury travel agents Cox & Kings and will be on display at the Royal Geographical Society, London on 10th October during an Indian themed evening.
