The ‘Curiosity’ is finished at last
After over a year of steady, if occasional, stitching, Curis Tabescimus Omnes – to give it its formal title – is finally complete. The last stitch went in this morning, and it is now firmly stretched and dampened to get the puckers and wrinkles out. (It was worked in the hand, not on a frame. I find this much easier, but it does leave me with a major straightening job at the end. It may well need two sessions before it’s flat enough.) I’ll write about the source of the image, and what it represents, in a future post. There’s quite a lot to say about it. But I couldn’t resist putting this little sneak preview onto the blog for you right now.
