Limits and Resistance

As promised last night I have managed to get some reasonable pictures of the piece that I bought. They are not the best I have ever taken as it is mounted on very dark grey perspex so difficult to photograph. It is actually darker than it appears in the pictures. The title of the piece is Limits and Resistance.

This close up shows the detail of some of the stitching.

This is a close up of one of the square on the left hand side. They all have images of a figure stitched on them. A bit blurred I'm afraid.

It is hanging above my new fireplace and is likely to be the last thing I buy for a while as I got the car back today and now it is me that is broke!

Happy stitching



  1. Very interesting piece. Is it made with the metal fabrics also? What are the little pill-like forms on the quilt? I love the quilting.

  2. WOW! So beautiful. Stitches, background and all. I love the special color effects. Where can a person buy this metal fabric, and are there other things you can use to heat it? Let us know!

  3. It's a beautiful piece - and you'll be able to enjoy looking at it every day.

  4. Gorgeous colours and beautiful stitching in this lovely piece. At least you can enjoy looking at it as you sit there with your dry bread and water!!
