This is an ongoing installation work, which seeks to use a large portion of the embroidered flowers in my 'stockpile' of domestic linens - doilies, tea and tray-cloths, tablecloths etc. I began working on these, using embroidery hoops I bought in Malaysia in 2008, when preparing to give a workshop to a group of older crafters recently. I enjoyed the simplicity of working within the limited format of the hoop and working with one colour, or from one piece of domestic table linen. I decided to transfer each one, pinned as usual to a fine layer of bridal tulle, from the hoop to a large 3 x 1.8mtr length of tulle on my studio wall. The idea being to create a large wall of flora, or a wall garden. The circular pattern of the embroidery hoop will be apparent, but the negative spaces in between the circles will eventually be filled, in order to link each individual 'garden' within the whole. As with my work of 2015 Feint Heart, I want the viewer to feel a sense of being overwhelmed by the labour, the love and the beauty of every day needlework - when taken out of its functional setting and presented on masse in this way. The photos below show the work in progress, both on the hoops and growing on the wall.
