Apart from all the holiday distractions, not to speak of the Royal Wedding, I have been making a start on my submission for this years’ ‘We Love Your Books’ exhibition, which has the theme of ‘Crop’. I need to submit that by the start of June and feel that I am well on my way with it now. This year it will be an online exhibition only. I am quite pleased with my idea and hope the execution will be OK. You will get to see it here whether I am accepted or not; lets wait and see.
I have also been messing with bits and pieces of felt and working on some machining to raise the surface following Lisa Klakulak's methods. She uses a ‘leg lifter’ on her machine but as I don’t have one I use my embroidery unit foot which has a very small hoop on the end. I have done a few small samples, and I think I need to make sure my prefelt is a little more substantial than in this piece. It is nice and tactile.
