What have I been doing?
As an artist, nothing of great interest. No big news on the frontier of soft sculptural textiles for me. I recently made a rug out of the tshirt material I cut up, but it ended up being a circle shape, so, nothing that was noteworthy in its difficulty. I had a little left over too, so I made a small bowl shape, which I now store my bobby pins in.
It was supposed to be a heart shape, but at some point, it lost its way and got weird, so I pulled it apart and started again.
You can chart the course it took pretty easily:
Starting out strong…
Still going ok…
Starting to meander…
Sometimes it is better to stick with what you know.
And that has been what is up with me of late, at least as an artist. As a person? So many other things, but that is a story for another day…
Nice! I just made a rug out of old tshirts as well..however mine was a lot different. I like how you crochet yours 🙂
Thank you for the comment! I had a look at your recycled fabric rugs, it’s a different effect for sure, but they still look great. It feels so good to turn unwanted things into wanted things, right!?
I agree! We have a small pile of old things we want to make things out of.
