I often see my fellow artists and artisans posting photos on Facebook on Wednesdays for “WIP” or “Work in Progress” Wednesday. I thought I would give a peek into a piece I have been working on for the last year. My passion is my fiber art. Whether is is wearable Couture, framed or small box sculptures it is what makes my heart sing and brings satisfaction to my life. Here are 3 pics of work that is part way through. The embroidery is finished as far as I know but I have other elements I am in the process of adding. The next photos will hopefully be when this piece is finally finished. The face was drawn first and then I painted the design onto evenweave fabric with a large palette of colors in cotton, rayon and various metallic threads.
This is what a Snappy Tatter does when she is not tatting!
This is unnamed for now. Thoughts of titles are floating around but I will wait until the final stitches are laid and more elements are added to make that commitment.
This is my WIP right now. There are other things…a new watch is in the works and a smaller embroidery needs framed and two Couture designs are being worked on. Hopefully I will have pics of those things very soon as well as this finished design.
Live, Love, Tat!
