Medieval Dragon is home

My Medieval dragon from Dianne Cevaal’s Medieval touring exhibition arrived safely home this morning.

It is always fun when apiece of textile art returns to you. While heavily involved in developing and working on a piece of art is difficult to be objective. However when if comes back after a prolonged journey appraisal is so much easier with that distance.

Overall I am very happy with the embellishment of Dijanne’s linoprint and my binding is improving. I do find sometimes I do not allow enough time for the finishing details when working to a deadline. It is like finishing knitting a jumper and then underestimating the time it will take to sew in all those ends and hand sew together.

I used a variety of stitches and techniques including beading, foiling, gold leather and I’m pretty happy with the overall effect. Some of the beading has come a little loose so next time I will double stitch all the beads and back stitch each one, especially for a travelling situation.

Dijanne is sending out linoprints at the moment for her next touring exhibition: Aussie Bush Project. It is a great way to practice colour and stitching design skills while producing something that will tour for a year-very satisfying and meditative.
