Four scrolls now done!

 As mentioned, these scrolls are a central feature of the exhibition in Scotland, and I am pushing through stitching as much as I can, and as often as I can, to complete the series.  The fourth one is now finished and it feels a bit better knowing that I have three to go, and that each of them is shorter than this longest one, so hopefully I am well over the half way mark.

Here is the back of the fourth scroll showing two hand stitched seams and the 'interesting' stitching!

And here is the right side with a lovely seam sitting flat and words that can be read.

Here it is unfurling...

And the four of them together in many ways...

And transferring the words onto the fifth one so we can begin again...

  1. wicker basket ... a term used so often in childhood, and now I can't recall the last time I heard it used

    love how the scrolls flow, like rolling hills and waves
