Good morning everyone! So you may be wondering which project I’ve decided to work on next. I looked at my project mind map and updated it. I want to move onto some Nova Scotia themed mats, but I have three small poetry mats left from my children’s poetry to complete. All three are on backing. All three present different challenges. So I decided to finish those up.
I decided to hook “The Weave” next. It is based on a poem my youngest daughter wrote around 17 years of age on the fabric of life. I already put it on backing last summer. This weekend I colour planned it. I am using a hexad colour scheme, which is new to me. So I sent a series of texts, including photos, to my weaving relative with excellent colour sense to get her opinion. I am eagerly awaiting her reply. In the meantime, I’ve actually started hooking it.
While I am finishing the poetry series up, I am preparing for my next series of wall hangings focusing on the wharves of Nova Scotia. Hubby and I went on a day trip with my walking buddy to her cabin/trailer on Digby Neck this spring before lockdown. I had a lovely time stopping in at the various wharves in the area, taking oodles of photos!
This weekend I started the preliminary sketching for a new series. I am not sure how I am going to represent some of these wharves. I may end up going slightly abstract…or not. We shall see.
If you have been, thanks for reading! Have a great week everyone!
