A group of internet artists from all over the place who have decided to give each other a challenge every few weeks, on a theme chosen by each in turn. We have different ideas and styles, but share a love of textiles, and want to have some fun.

time challenge started!
i have started on the new challenge theme: time....
and for once i have an idea that i'm going to stick with, AND i have started - bonus points and elephant stamp please.
in conversation with Kind Dog on the subject, i was struck by an idea that is about process rather than form or about trying to capture a feeling or abstract idea. this one is extremely practical.
so far i have machine sewn strips of old cloth - fragments of old linens and clothing (cottons, silks, linens) onto a base ripped from an old cotton sheet. and i am hand stitching now with the most delicious thread that arrived this week from nancy at long ridge farm.
