I’ve been tidying the workroom following the completion of ‘Moments of Peace’ and ‘Communion’ and gathered together a little crowd of strays.
This is a 6″ square patchwork block made from bits of silk (left over from the circles), hand pieced over paper. It’s sitting on a background of layered silks, still very much in progress. I’m thinking ‘moments to spare’.
A second patchwork block, covered with hand-dyed silk chiffon. It’s always with some trepidation that I embark on something like this – something spontaneous, unplanned. As Dr Frankenstein found, just because the parts are all beautiful, the whole will not necessarily be so. It’s an exercise in trust, as much as anything.
