City of Craft Toronto Installation
A while back I tweeted that I was accepted into the City of Craft festival in Toronto in December, so I figured I’d give you a quick shot of the work-in-progress. I had a very definate idea in mind for this, wanting to emulate stencil graffiti in stitch and so I figured I could probably use blackwork for that. What do you think, has it worked out? There’s still a few more pieces to stitch to complete it, but they’re simpler than this so – come hell or high water – I will get this finished this weekend!
Overall pic. Because this piece is so large (stitched are is ~60cm high) it doesn't fit on any of my frames and I have to stitch in hand. The creases WILL be removed from the finished piece!
