Where has the time gone? We are into our last few weeks of our residency and the studio spaces have filled up with work in progress and ideas that we won’t get finished, but they are there for the future. This week I completed a stitch project, using the buttonhole stitch on some tree branches, working on the idea of embalming and capillary. It is my first mini installation since first year in college, and I enjoyed it, so may there be many more. . Deirdre

It is very therapeutic work and as I stitch my mind wonders how to incorporate it into my work…Lots to mull over…Deirdre
