Changing the experience

The piece I am working on at the moment ( images below) is changing my experience of stitching.  The much loved sitting and stitching with a soft piece of cloth in the hand has disappeared from this piece.  It has become something different.  It has become a piece of sculpture; taking on a new form that requires me to respond to it as if sculpting or basketmaking – even standing up to stitch as it’s too big to handle on my lap.

I might need to have another piece on the go at the same time; although is this side stepping the challenge or moving the goal posts – perhaps I should press on to see what comes of this piece.
