I like the randomness of this and the bright colours, the round shapes, like dots on the floor.
I think this photo inspires bold and interesting studies of colour and stitch.
Some further scatterings produced these...
I hope to make several smaller studies using a variety of stitches and then make a big one to satisfy this desire...

I did one last year
I was reasonably happy with what I achieved last year and I still have several ideas that I have yet to explore...
Forth Street I
To The Windmill
For the past week I have trying to get a plan of action for this year's exhibition... I haven't been doing much actual stitching recently... just idea generation!
So the fruits of my deliberations are...
Pom Pom studies - inspired by this and this
Lantern - inspired by this and this
I am being less ambitious with the variety of pieces this year. I need more time to explore ideas thoroughly.
I suppose the over riding theme this year will be colour and stitches...

You can buy paintings, sculpture, prints etc through participating galleries.
Really like this idea...
Although it maybe goes against the current credit crunch grain of living modestly within your means rather than living on tick...
