I've been sewing alot lately. I started on Thursday between the dress rehersal and the opening concert at the Ilios-festival in Harstad. It's a festival of contemporary music. I played an insanely difficult piece and I needed to relax before the concert. I've been admiring Bonnie's work for a long time and I decided I was going to try out the Basket weave technique. I had a lot of strips narrower than 1.5 inch so I poured them out on my table and started sewing a light one on to a dark one. I cut, sewed and ironed, cut, sewed and ironed and after a couple of hours work I had some blocks done. The best part was that I was totally relaxed after that sewing session. I continued to sew yesterday and this morning also, and now I can present 17 blocks! I don't know what to do with them yet, but I hope to put them in a contemporary kind of work. It would suit the music I've been playing this week.
Thanks Bonnie for the inspiration!
