Fixed! Friday 11

Welcome to the next part of Fixed! Friday.

Had another day off and spent the morning in the Chaos Cuisine tidying up (failed), crocheted a basic coral from some raffia (work in progress) and cut some fabrics from one of my project bags (more work, some progress). Music: Cover to Cover by the Jeff Healey Band (Track 7: Stuck In The Middle With You 🙄 ). Heading over to The Boudoir in a few minutes for some more cutting and hopefully some sewing too.

Out of Africa IV

Another one made from the African-style strips I mentioned in FF10. To give you an idea, here’s a pic I found in my folder.

After taking the strip apart and the panel sewn, I went through my collection and found some matching glass beads. I used a sturdy cotton fabric for the front and back and a binding made of some yellow and brown batik.

The panel is made of 165 pieces and finishing took me 23’45 hours between August and December 2003. The piece measures 68 x 69 cms.
