It's done!!!

The panel is finished... sewn onto the backing cloth and ready to be hung in the exhibition. I will spend this week editing the photos, and once I photograph it in the Ashmolean next Saturday I will post the saga of the panel. It feels like I've sent a child out into the world... it took as long to produce. I am very proud of it.

The project goes on, but there won't be the pressure of the deadline anymore. Any more panels I make can join it when they are ready, so I can work as and when I feel the urge. This one was very ambitious, and I realised today that I have done it all by hand, apart from the final edging that holds it on the backing cloth. The only machine stitching has been put on it today... so I'm also proud of me. I also managed to do that much on the machine. So I may try and do little bits of machine sewing, leading to some new clothes for me.

I'm feeling relieved and encouraged and inspired... It has been a wonderful experience.
