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 in November 2016, using embroidery hoops (bought in Malaysia in 2008). I was preparing to give a workshop to a group of older crafters and because 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 from the hoop to a large 300 x 185cm length of tulle on my studio wall. The idea is to create a large wall of flora, or a 'wall garden'. 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.
