A friend sent these old piece of stitching to me in the post to add to my ‘pieced’ work for Nature in Art. It has given me thoughts for a new piece of work that might contain pieces of stitching from friends. These pieces would then have another narrative than the one that they began with which is always of interest to me; as in African American quilts. In a discussion with Liz Harding she suggested the new narrative idea and its now mulling around in my brain, but I have to put it on one side for a while, whilst I get on with my research work. Although I am piecing some surfaces for my folds now and more ideas are coming from that.
