I have finished the turtle and am now working on the caribou. I can't for the life of me seem to get a good picture of this. It has something to do with the shadows that the yarn casts, making the lines look a bit thicker than they are. But I fear the only reason that I can't get a sharp focus is that the camera is dying. It's a Panasonic DMC-TZ1, in case anyone has technical information that they could share.
Anyways, now that I'm out of the gate, I think I will only post finished images, unless something exciting is going on, stitch-wise. Otherwise it could get boring rather quickly, like watching someone run a marathon.
I'm an artist who has been making stuff for 30 years. I used to spin, knit, weave, quilt, design, write, embroider and garden, and I still do most of these things, but for the last few years I have been focused on stitching images from Canada's first natural history, the Codex Canadensis.
I try to live a life of minimal consumption and maximum creation. More and more, I see how these are connected.
