Well its the last day of 2012... phew.
So what more appropriate I thought clear up a few things on the table, and be ready to start over.
The two purple postcards have been on here before... they were a large piece which wasn't going anywhere, but after chopping up it seemed more suited the purpose. The patterns were marked when the colours were whole, then after chopping and stitching together a few times, I added the surface stitch patterns, which makes them now nicely randomised, if that's a word. The greeny coloured one in the background is the same cut/stitch/cut method, just includes patterned paper. All these pieces actually needed was a backing. However I'd held off wondering whether I should add something else or coat with varnish, and they moved around the table not getting anywhere. So today, enough, put the backing on... which is actually a good quality cartridge paper, printed up with my details. And done, at last.
So today, as far as I'm concerned is Old Year's Night, as we always referred to it, in my native Norfolk. End of a year which has brought me challenges in all sorts of directions, could do with the next year being a little slower in order to recover.
