beginning with time: day

Another update on the wild pure piece.
I've been stitching diligently and have filled the central area with strips of plant dyed wool stitched with wool threads.
It's so large, I can't get back far enough to photograph it head on.  It covers the entire design wall in my home studio...the photo above was taken from the doorway.  98 inches wide, 85 inches high.
The earthy warm brown of the reclaimed overdyed wool blanket (previously pink) is becoming connected to the central part with rows of seed stitch.  
We've lost our snow.  The day is dark and rainy here.
I'll show the night side of  Beginning With Time in a future post.

Yes, this is wonderful. As Mo says, the sense of weight, density, texture....I love it.

Margaret said...

I'm struck by how the palette in the stitched piece mirrors that of the trees in beds of wet leaves. Beautiful!
