Mostly Uninvited

I am having a problem with my blanket. The area I have been working on is nice and flat, but the area around the faces is badly stretched. It’s a pretty ancient blanket, which has been felted over the years. Hanging it over the edge of the table for so long hasn’t helped.

I hammered loads of nails into our wall (not a studio, our actual living area), to see if I could get a better idea of the mis-shaping. I think I have decided to back it with an old sheet, and maybe trim off the warped edges.

  1. Good idea. I was going to suggest lining it and perhaps doing a little quilting to add a sculptural element. The shape it’s taking is cool, Alison….definitely organic! It has a life of its own…
