Here is some more stitching with fabric scraps inspired by the colour scheme of wilting purple tulips. The second photo shows what it looks like when overlaid with crochet lace.
I have lots of ideas at the moment of how this could be further explored and I’m pleased with the direction it’s going in as it conveys the pretty, organic and feminine nature of the things I am inspired by at the moment. It also refers to deterioration and repair.
It can take such a long time to satisfactorily combine different elements of inspiration, especially when there are so many things one would like to include, of course you don’t want to throw everything in but the kitchen sink! I guess tirelessly working towards a balanced look is so much of what design is about. I often get frustrated at how long it takes and I’m sure I over-complicate things and also change direction far too much. Creativity is as much a path of self-mastery as the development of certain skills and ability to communicate ideas or aesthetics. Oh well, all one can do is keep going with the hope that one day everything will come together!
