Homes for the holidays
I’ve found these golden houses so compelling and enjoyable, as well as meaningful, to work on. Although the final state of the piece is not yet clear. I tried a few things with them and finally decided it wanted to stitch them all together in a cluster, without any background for now. It felt like connecting households in this season of COVID was especially symbolic.
The assemblage is temporarily pinned to a piece of netting. I may stitch it down and cut out the negative space (also a symbolic act, eh?). I may also quilt it a bit to give it some puff. Or it may become a pillow cover. Anyway, it is fun to work on. Before I do anything else, I may need to add more features – doors, windows, stairs, shingles – because that is just so satisfying.
