Now, where were we before Festival of Quilts happened?!
I'd left it in an odd state so that visitors to foq could see the constructions processes - I thought that might be fun - but I've begun sorting it out, and have now finished all the stitching on the body (nb much easier to do this before the rest of the quilt is painted especially if you have a tiny machine to try and squash the quilt into!)
I've also been working on the panels to the right of the model, and thoroughly enjoyed painting an eye for one of them. I used to hate doing eyes, but now I think they're the best thing ever!! Here it is, not quite finished.
and without words. A connection made with eyes only; fleeting but connected. The eye I hope stares at you and has a faint intense look- not a smile, not anger, nothing except a deep look into what is in your heart. Or am I waxing too lyrical for 9.30 on a Tuesday morning?
