I finished the wool stitching I've been working on. Today I took it into Sudbury for professional photography, left it with him over night. 'Treat it like a sculpture in space', I said. 'Make it look as good as you possibly can'.
In this post I'm showing my own photos of the work in progress. This is the reverse side of the Wild Pure exhibition piece. (other side shown here ) The charcoal wool blanket in the main area is an old camp blanket from the family. It, and the brown blanket section on the bottom were both over-dyed with blackberry vine and iron.
when it was with me, I knew what to do.
a morning and an afternoon and
night's queer knuckled hand
hold me separate and whole
stitching tight my daily soul
