Karol and the Hand - Work in Progress
This is as far as I have got with a new project, a pencil outline on greaseproof paper. This is the fiddliest section of the outline that I am going to stitch, a little hand. It is taken from my brother in law's favourite photograph, a picture of Karol, a little cousin in Poland looking out of the window at the snow. He is silhouetted against the snowy scene outside. Months ago my brother in law, Richard, asked if I could do a wall hanging based on the photograph. I have finally figured what I am going to try - whether it works is a different matter.
I am going to make a stencil so I can transfer the design onto some plain dark blue cotton, then do free motion quilting around it. If it works, more posts will follow. If it's a complete failure, I'll own up, but it could take some time.
