I'm still continuing on my vein for multi-coloured "seemingly without any system of colour" hardanger. Because it's fun! and I needed some cheering up!
This was an easy project, and the first needleweaving sampler from that Jenny Geldens book I bought in Singapore, and keeping a constant change of colours made it interesting. I can never stick to a single colour at this point, which is probably good because I'm going to be broke enough not to even dare think about silks for another few years!
A lot of different needleweaving looks forms the premise of this sampler. At first sight, it looks a little bit like Amish quilt squarers (after you've had a gin or eight), then it didn't (after the gin's effect wore off). I'm notta lush, though :P So I'm a tad hard-pressed to find a name for it, until I figured they reminded me a little bit of the many rainbow colours in a Selena Fenech painting called (aptly enuff) Bubbles.
Google Selena Fenech's name (she's an Australian artist and she does nice curvy fantasy women, by curvy I mean, "with a little good meat on their bones" not OTT or those nasty stickyout collarbone fashion models). Shoot me, I've got an opinion, hahaha!
But I digress... I'm calling this Bubblegum Pop, because of the whimsical colours, the different shades and hues, and because it looks a little 'lite and brite and nothing too serious'. Like bubblegum pop music!
I promised myeslf, it's back to cross stitch, so I'll be XSing again after this.
This is going to be my last post for a few days... I'm heading to Jakarta for a conference... too little time to prepare, not really keen but it's a little addition to my resume.
