A wee collaboration between Kit Lane and me, a few of her fabulous 'Bobs given some stitchy love from me. She'll be unveiling these in her shop this afternoon.
Both the pale yellow guy at the top and the pink one behind him were needled by Kit as we sat and chatted together one snowy weekend in April. I had given her some wool that I had dyed, the yellow with strawberry leaves (I think) and the pink from lobster mushrooms, and she was trying it out on my visit. When they were finished I tucked them in my suitcase along with memories of amazing conversation, bites of forbidden cheesecake, and San Pellegrino fizzy water, and brought them home to stitch. (the white one was hers to keep)
The yellow one was encrusted with knots and stitches, all of dyed by me with materials from my woods. The pink one seemed to long for something a little more quirky.
Kit does wonderful work from these squee-inspiring Jacabobs to her sculptural pieces (and Jabba, we can't forget Jabba) and has a dedicated following. I'm thrilled to have been able to collaborate with her.
If you're interested in owning one of these pieces, keep your eye on her shop. They should be there some time this afternoon.
