Yesterday we saw Dad and Junior. Junior is still having lessons.
This morning we saw a female with a juvenile. Most of his/her red cap has gone but he/she is still being fed. Mum on left.
And then this male (Dad?) turns up alone.
So far I drew a cartoon out on flip chart paper, sourced some photos and then transferred some of the cartoon onto freezer paper. In the Jan Messent book she did a lovely pieced and hand stitched hanging of St Cuthbert. I liked the concept and found a local story to use myself. We have a 12th c church ruin near us that is set in a Bronze Age barrow and there is a tale that the devil stole the church bell and threw it in the river. The local people harnessed up white oxen to pull it out but didn’t succeed. I will be filling the blank spaces with the church, the pulling scene and the ruin. Well that’s the theory! I have the sketches I just have to trace them out.
I have started the top panel already using calico, silk threads and wool wadding. A least it is portable and should keep me quiet for a while. It is 18 x 36 inches in total but I'm doing the panels separately.
