SAA Challenge

TRAC has decided to take part in the  Society of All Artists World record attempt.  Each member of the group was allocated two segments of the Isle of Wight. I had Seaview and Nettlestone Point, one of my favourite places, and Keyhaven, which although is not on the island, completes the corner of the picture. Unsure whether I would enjoy stitching so precisely, the pieces came together quite easily and there was room for creativity! I used Stitch ‘n’ Tear to trace the map and consequently worked from the back of the piece. Once I had engaged with the logic of that, it was a good approach.  One piece was hand stitched and the other, machine embroidered.
