Geometric Landscape 1

Geometric landscape I is finished at last, finished except the backing and the hanging device and I'm going to keep my options open on that until I've finished the other pieces in the series. The piece is 59cm square and I know this is true because I measured it a number of times (!) but it doesn't look square to me it looks more of a portrait format.

The real colours are closer to those on the right hand side of the picture

There is very little decorative stitching on the piece, only on the horizontal ochre strip but that doesn't mean it hasn't taken a long time to complete. I've lost count of the amount of time I have spent cutting, stitching, moving the pieces around and thinking about this piece. If I put it away for a while and come back to it, I'll probably appreciate it more. 

I have now started stitching the background for the Geometric Landscape II piece and there is going to be a lot of stitching on this piece and I'm enjoying it - hope I'll still be enjoying it at the end!

I've now started printing a background fabric for my 3rd geometric landscape, which I hope will support some of my fabric origami, more of that another time.


  1. It looks great. I like the restraint of the stitching (less is more!)


Please leave your comments - it would be great to hear from you
