Here is the start of the new module – Applique.
|Design tacked onto silk|
|Applique inspired by Baldishol Tapestry|
Not a lot to show as yet, apart from the design and a few appliquéd pieces but I somehow think that this will keep me out of mischief for a wee while! The inspiration is the Norwegian Baldishol Tapestry - thought to date from about the same era as the more well known (in England!) Bayeux tapestry. Sadly only remnants remain in The Oslo Museum of Applied Art.
I am also back on the voluntary work – repairing the church furnishings. A pulpit fall that was used over Advent was noticed to be a little bit in need of repair.
|Previous repair work and loose threads|
|Loose threads where couching decayed|
So it got brought home to see if I could do something with it! Only problem is…..Lent is in a fortnight . So here I am, trying to get that finished before
a) the start of Lent and
b) I really get busy with RSN work
