I always loved this panel from my 'Charles Schulz is dead' comic – if you don't know the original and want to see it let me know and I'll try to find it and post it on Friday.
The stitching is a challenge. Still working it out. Persisting. It looks a bit funny but was very therapeutic. Thanks for the nice comments about Bert. Still trying to get myself under control but am getting there.
So, remember that comic that I was embroidering for the TINA comic exhibition in Newcastle in early October?
I only got this far.
I gave up for a number of reasons. It had become clear that I hadn't allowed myself enough time. I had decided that I had actually used an inappropriate backing fabric (ie damask) that was hard to embroider, would bleed and wouldn't hang straight. Oh and I was kind of having an emotional breakdown at the same time.
This is the plan that I was stitching to.
Even though it's unfinished it feels good to have purged myself of it. Now onto other comics!
Oh and my sweet peas were just gorgeous and gave me so much joy! There are still a few stragglers out but most of them have gone to seed now. Will be collecting the seeds for next year.
