And then this afternoon from the far reaches of the Bristol Channel, came a request to know if an Altar Frontal would be an acceptable assessment piece!  No.2 daughter is currently staying on Lundy Island while she writes a book (or bits of two), I’ve told her the time scale is a bit too short, but I’ll do it it next year.  It seems likely that she considers that the Chapel of St. Anne is in need of one.  There is no wifi, so brief text messages seem to be her only method of communication.  That would have won hands down if she’d mentioned it earlier, but as it is, I’ll view it as a present for completing the course.

I originally intended to use a ‘pillow-case overlap’ as the fastening, but the design of the back doesn’t allow for that, so I will probably use velcro on the facings at the bottom, and put piping on the outside front of the opening, as I think the prairie points will get horribly bent there.  I shall still use them for the rest of the cushion.

This is one of the manipulated sections of a piece called ‘Raiment of Needlework’, my contribution to a collective EG Branch piece ‘Cloth on Gold’ for the 2019 exhibition.  It is a sandwich of sticky soluble paper and Romeo with ‘snippettings’ of fabric and thread as the filling.

With added stitching using a Flower Stitcher foot

Manipulation using fibre-tip pens to corrugate
