Well here it is in the foyer of Hull Truck Theatre, an accompaniment to the Hull stage of the 'Just Tie Up Your Fingers' theatre production.
Finished and looking smashing, all blocked and stretched on a frame,
it wasn't a disappointment!
Holy Trinity Church, where the wonderful coble boat is and all the fabulous knitting shown in my previous 2 posts, have asked to have this knitted painting later, so I'm chuffed to think it will be on permanent display there.
The play which I went to see this evening and enjoyed, centres around 3 women's lives back in 1881 and this particular Homer painting also features 3 fisher women, which is why Sue selected it!
I really liked the way the sky was interpreted, as if the dreadful storm of 1881 was there in the distance, creeping towards land.
I was relieved to see that the womens' faces which I'd stitched did look to scale in the end lol But I still think I made the woman on the right look pretty scary! lol
Not that the colours are true, so will take another pic in daylight, but these are my latest hexi florets - as opposed to flowers!
Oh and I noticed at school today that the caretakers had rigged up another outdoor play toy for the nursery kids and I thought it was such a clever idea.
They have made use of odd and ends of piping and rainwater whatever they are called - and by the looks of it, the kids can roll ping pong balls from top to bottom. I thought it would be good fun for littlies at play.
