I’ve used a paler white gold for the main background, so this dark gold will contrast nicely

I DId some small heads ready to slip as well.

I will be mounting them individually in the end – if I was mounting them as a group i think they’d need stitcks up them so they’d look like the severed heads on traitors gate!

Yes terday I didn’t feel like sewing so instead I was a brave little soldier and cut this out ready to mount as a slip – it’s hemmed and ready to go onto brown velvet. I’m jsut waiting for the frame to arrive so I can check the mount size first

I think he plays jazz

Unfortunately, he continues to play jazz when the rest of the band are halfway through a polka

I don’t think cats belong in the rythm section really, they’re more improvised jazz, cool catz

I’ve taken it off the frame and I’m letting it relax for a couple of weeks before I slip mount it onto velvet – it’s back on the mantlepiece behind the desk in exactly the same position the original drawing sat for nearly a year whilst I worked on the book, which feels oddly familiar. Once I’ve done that I’ll order a frame – I’m going to enter it for the broderers exhibition once that opens in September,(I’ve paid the registration fee, and then written the entry date on the kitchen calendar because it would be just like me to pay that money and then forget to enter because I have zero concept of time) but I think this is one I’d want to frame anyway. 
the velvet will be brown, because standard opus anglicanum red would look right nasty with this.
Not that I can stand anything I make on the walls at home, more for carrying it about. the whole not liking my own work on display, btw, is not because I’m not fond of it or I think it’s bad, it’s got more to do with preferring beautiful things made by other people to be on display. I get more inspiration from them, whereas looking at my own work all the time just makes me feel creatively constipated. Plus I don’t really like disruption in my personal space, so my own stuff stays packed up ready to be taken out for classes and exhibitions, because having to take it off the walls for that would irritate me.
