A few days ago Dionne Swift had a pop up sale via Facebook and as I viewed the works on offer I was instantly drawn to one of the pieces. (Well, more than one of them, actually).
The piece is called 'Blue Arc' and is absolutely beautiful. The base fabric has wonderful colours and textures and these set off the energetic stitching inside the arc. The turquoise surrounding the stitching is particularly vibrant and pulses and vibrates as you catch sight of it. I am going to keep it in my workroom where I am sure it will constantly inspire me and remind me my favourite place, St Ives.
I am continuing to work on my 'Horizon' piece but have hit that brick wall bit when nothing seems to be working. I had a play with the pieces this morning but I still can't decide how I'm actually going to put them together. Back to the drawing board, I think.
