A blog about making art and other things using cloth, paper, paint, colour, stitch, and all sorts of exciting techniques, some of which I'm sure I still have to discover! I hope that the joy all this gives me is visible in what you can see here.

Stitch Olympics!


 My hubby has been glued to the TV watching the Olympics, in fact, I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't grow roots from his backside into the sofa!!! ha ha ha. Anyway, although I'm not really a very sporty person, I have to admit that I've been drawn into some of it, especially the cycling and some of the athletics. I find it difficult to just sit and do nothing, so I've been hand stitching these small pieces of rusted cotton fabric. This is probably no more than 4"x4", and again, it's put me in mind of the edge of the sea, with all that goes on there. Something about it put me in mind of a Marina, with boats moored in rows, and all the paraphernalia that goes with that! I'm calling it 'Marina'.
