AFTER A LONG ABSENCE
I decided to try and get back into some activities that have been let slip as time has been taken up with physio and trying to get my shoulder unfrozen , it is coming. I had been pre warned it could take up to a year. After a time of being in one place ,I had to get it moving and now reaching 143deg and goal is 160deg so that is encouraging.
I have got back to my happy place and have been creating small pieces for the upcoming show in November, maybe not as much as I usually show but have to accept where I am at.
For those that don't follow me on my FB site Etched In Thread By Ally I will post a few of my thread paintings, over the next little while.
This is one I started in Australia while visiting my friend Barb, we had a afternoon of using our inktense pencils and blocks , then started on the thread painting. Needless to say it didn't get touch for a while as my shoulder was out of action.
It is a picture of Cornwall which reminds me of our time in UK when we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. There are lots of coves like this with the rugged coastline and crashing waves. I have a few more I would like to attempt, probably over the winter months when that white stuff is fluttering around!!
Here are a few smaller pieces that don't take quite as many hours to sew, so am able to sell in the shadow boxes at a reasonable price. All these will be at Christmas in Paris show in November. These are made of a combination of fabric appliqué and threading with some hand embroidery as well.
Where would summer be if we didn't spend it with our children and grandchildren.
Here are a couple of pictures of some of our activities.
