What's Stitching Now

I am still finalizing plans for casket 3. Meanwhile I have two other projects to work on. 
The first is this piece about accentuating the positive. It was a rug hooking pattern from way back when. I adapted it to my family, the affirmative portion of the drawing. I drew this out and started stitching over a year ago.
  


This is how far I am as of this last weekend. It doesn't get picked up often but it is getting done slowly.


For a while I considered putting a map of my World of Possibilities on the back panel of casket 3. It was too much information in a small space.


So I decided to do a separate embroidery of the map. I did all of the drawing and design work for this on my IPad Pro. It was fun to work at one scale then print it out to the size I want to stitch it.


Here are the two designs so you can get a sense of the scale. I plan to stitch the map in wool. I have missed working in wool.

  1. That map looks nearly as big as the project I'm planning for when Amarna is done!

  2. I am hoping 2 years is a doable time period for this piece. We’ll see. Who know’s what eight grab my interest during that time.
