making it up as I go along


yesterday's quilting marathon inspired me to return to another 'patchwork'- oldie of mine; this is what's left of an oil painting I made in 2008 and (obviously) didn't like too much, so I cut it up and sewed a selection of squares together; it used to measure 50x60 cm and now measures 35x35 cm and has deeper sides, 5 cm; I made a stretcher and used jeans cloth for the sides.  After these alterations it was left untouched, until today that is: several squares were damaged by the assault and these have been covered with a layering of cloth on the right and a white patch on the left which can still be lifted to reveal a partial Eve, who has turned rather bashful, in the right hand corner I 'un'covered two masklike faces, inspired by Dee 's post over on http://deemallon.wordpress.com

Hi Saskia,

Nice too see what you were talking about. I think it's addictive.

thanks, although it has changed since your comment......the colours in yesterday's post are more like the real thing; less bright
