I managed some time in the studio on the weekend and also saw two wonderful documentary films at our local DocFest. The films, Kinshasa Symphony and West Wind: The Vision of Tom Thomson were both outstanding, the former a story of courage and determination in urban Africa and the latter a sensuously beautiful homage to Canada’s most well-known artist. I recommend them both.
And in the studio, the first of a series of Kenya pouches. A friend gave me the remaining leather after she had her new skirt shortened and I combined it with a small remnant I had.
The rest of the time was spent with Fireworks and I am definitely on the homeward stretch–finally.
Looking at those tiny patches of exposed linen are making my green eyes even greener! 😉 Hopefully I will be joining you in the Finisher’s Circle soon.
I’m still pushing myself to finish off the hooking ASAP, but have decided to take a wee break afterwards, before I start the steaming and finishing. One thing I know for sure: there will be no whipped edge. I timed myself once and determined it takes an hour for me to cover a foot, so this rug would be a full work-week worth of whipping. Talk about torture!
