After considering it for a while (and thanks to some family members willingness to lend me a tent and a table), I’ll be putting my application to the hometown arts festival in the mail today.
In thinking about what sort of work I’ll be taking with me, I have been trying to figure out a way to incorporate some hooped work. Recently this has taken the form of experimenting with some netting. It’s not quite there just yet, but I am not ready to give up on the idea.
Still, I’ve been taking breaks and turning back to a piece that will be all French knots. I’ve made still more progress since this last photo and I’m finding that stitching it is incredibly calming. It’s really starting to take shape and I can’t wait to get back to it tonight.
