Today Crowded returned from its adventure in the USA as part of the Quilt National 2015. It was good to unpack it and remind myself of the piece. I have been delighted with the direction my work has taken after I embarked on printmaking. This is my first large piece developed from prints, and I'm pleased to have it home again.
As this year comes towards its end I am still working on Soliloquy, another large piece developed from prints - lino prints this time rather than the variable edition collagraphs of Crowded - and one that I was hoping to have done in time to enter for the European Quilt Triennial. I might still just make it, but probably not, and in fact I am beginning to wonder about making many more large pieces.
I feel that it is time for a change - not a radical change, but a development, and the turn of a year is as good a time as any to ponder that some more.
