Because I haven't 'created' anything I thought I would show my Virgin Bride dress which I made a few years back - which is modelled by Kazuko. It is natural silk fibres made into silk paper (fusion) onto bridal tuile (nothing less). Onto each each large piece I stitched Shakespearean sonnets and bridal words of wisdom such as I won't do all the housework or clean the toilet etc etc. Then I cut it into strips and wrapped a variety of yarns, beads and fine knitting wire around each roll and stitched it all very tenderley together. If you look at the back of the photo you will see the barbecue in our garden before we demolished it for the studio. Underneath is her bag because every bride needs one for her hanky (yes I made one for her)
Off to a play tonight to see The Goat.
Wasn't it absolutely wonderful that Team NZ won the challenge for the Americas Cup not that there was anything on the news here about it. Where is the Anzac spirit I ask?
