Kamlaika - "Seams"

Another finish last week was my piece using wax paper. Inspired by Kamlaika parkas I saw in Alaska which had been made by indigenous people groups.

On Saturday, we had the reveal of the work for our Worn Threads exhibition. I hadn't been able to get a photo here at home, so this is a quick one taken at the community centre.

(A bit of bad photo shopping at the left
to get a colourful coat out of the background.)

I will get some detail photos of the stitching to show sometime this week. We will be selecting and arranging so we know which pieces to take to the first venue.
It will be at Lady Sew and Sew in Henley from the 4th of February for 3 weeks. Then it will go to the National Needlework Archive in April.
