|TAST Weeks 14 & 15 - Satin & Stem
"Plain Jane"? I have a cyber-friend named Jane, and she's anything but. Would such a title discomfit her?
"Less is More"? Or is that too cliche? I just couldn't use either of these.
I had great plans for this crazy patch block, too -- hence the wide desert of fine-count linen you see stretched across the centre, with little to show for it. I had visions of tiny satin stitch triangles dancing inside the larger one, which is outlined in stem stitch. Alas, I lost my taste for the work. For now, it remains "as is" in my stack of crazy quilt squares, and I'm going to move on. This week's stitch: the fun, funky and sometimes frustrating French Knot!
Back to titles for a moment...
and a question, which generated much discussion on the SAQA Yahoo group this past week. My SAQA colleague, Jean Judd -- a very talented and much-exhibited artist -- wondered about how artists title their work, and whether or not the title of a piece can turn off a potential purchaser. Take a look at her work, including her latest series (here), and see what you think. Thoughts?
