I've begun work on a series of scarves for a show in the middle of November with Plantation House. Quite excited and I have new ideas to try out.My scarves are all one of a kind and entirely made and finished by hand ( my hands I might add). Currently working on a scarf called Pond. My signature stitch is running stitch which is being worked on cotton silk fabric. Pond is more of a dupatta or a stole. Two and a half metres long and twenty two inches wide. There are circles of running stitch scattered at random along the length of the stole in dull pink ( water lilies), dark brown (dried leaves), green ( lily pads) and blue ( sky reflected in the water)
I have two done, this is the third and about fifteen more to go. I'm considering making two to three sarees this time, would like to see what the response will be. The saree is forty four inches wide and five and a half metres long. It will be a new format and layout I'll be working with.
