Simona's block of All Wool DYB

いつも月半ばはCQIのニュースレターの編集に追われていますが、今月もそれが終わってほっとしたところで、シモーナのブロックにとりかかりました。

After finishing of editing work of CQI Newsletter, I started stitching on Simona'sblock of All Wool DYB RR.

ピーシングはとてもシンプルです。
Her block is pieced very simply.



いろいろ考えましたがシームの処理もシンプルにすることにしました。
After considerations, I decided to do simple seam stitches.




シモーナのテーマは『秋』ですが、布の色が秋そのものです。シームステッチの後、とりあえず空いているところに何かしら秋の風景を作るモチーフ刺繍を入れていきました。その段階でブロックの縦横が決まりました。さて右のスペースに何を入れるかですが。

Her theme was "Autumn", but her chosen color was already autumn. Anyway I stitched some motifs without much thinking. But what should I do in the right space?



たまたま今読んでいる加賀乙彦の小説『永遠の都』第3巻の表紙を見ていて思いつき、スケッチ風の人の顔をステッチしました。ものを想う人の表情が秋らしいと思って。

The cover illustration of book I have been reading recently has inspired me. It's a drawing of woman's face who seems to be in meditating.



方法的にはシームにシンプルなシームステッチ、各パッチの中にモチーフ刺繍という非常に古典的な方式をとったにもかかわらず、仕上がりがモダンな現代美術になったのが自分ではとても気に入っています。

I love the result, which looks like as modern art. Isn't it?
