Week 5 Weekly Art Project 2017

Wow I had to make time to get to the Week 5 Art Project I found my inspiration last week and took photographs but have been trying to finish a textile assignment and could only finish the Project today.  Here is my inspiration a type of Palm Tree I saw in a park in West Brisbane.

I have decided for Weeks 5 to 8 to do 8 in by 8 in pieces still working on my tree inspiration.
The fabric in my work is my hand dyed and patterned and I have free hand cut the pieces (no paper piecing).

A Year of Stitches 2017

I am also participating in the "A Year of Stitches 2017".  I have been posting my photographs of each week's progress on Instagram but thought I would show you now and then what I am doing.  I am using Ironbark Arts(Ali George and I) Handdyed and patterned fabric in turquoise with a light harem cloth behind.  I decided I wanted mine to be a Stitch Library and so I started with whipped running stitch in Week 1 followed by Arrow Stitch and Feather Stitch (Week 3) and Blanket Stitch (Week 4).

For Week 5 (days 29 to 35) I have done crossed chain stitch see below:

I am finding this fun and just do a row a night which fits in for me.  I have been doing a University Textile Assignment and am a little behind on my Weekly Art Challenge so blog post coming shortly.

take care
