I may have mentioned before :-) that I am a very literal person so when I read that the next challenge was 'Threads' that's all I wanted to do! Except that I couldn't think of a way of re-creating my photo in fabric - until I attended a workshop/retreat with Gillian Travis on how she creates many of her pieces using paint and stitch. I've written about the workshop Art to Stitch on my 'Occasional Jottings' and quickly realised that I needed to get better acquainted with my acrylic paints!! I'm reasonably happy with the outcome. There are definite glitches in the perspective and whilst I was pleased with the highlights I decided not to push my luck by trying to add the shadows too!!!
