Losing the thread

Part of this residency is to give students a taste of what it is like to work as a practicing artist...which may mean witnessing the good and the bad!

This week is bad!...I am losing faith in the textile piece I am producing. Being 7 months pregnant is forcing me to limit just how much I can physically do which is meaning that I am relying on others to help me with parts of my ideas for the show and puts a strain on how much work I can do in a day.

The bell-jars for the recordings are going really well and I am so grateful to Ollie in DT for his help. Also to Nigel in advance for his help with mixing the recordings and getting them downloaded on the 7 different MP3 devices!


A weekend of thinking, and work on my tapestry, will probably help me decide how to proceed on Monday.
