Around 3 years ago during my Blodeuwedd - The Flower Bride project I buried a silk scarf in our compost heap at home. I placed rose leaves onto the silk then rolled it up and thought I would find it again after 3 or so months. Well my husband found it 2 weeks ago, he passed me a dirty roll and said I presume this is yours! It never made it to my project and unfortunately I don't have the original photographs to show the first step before burial. My tutor at Bradford Hannah Lamb may well remember the missing piece from my files.
Now that I have found it I hope to revive it within my ongoing project with vintage scarves. I feel that I can add this (embroidered of course) as the only 'new' scarf - as it really was found and revived.
How wonderful to re-discover it! xReplyDelete
I do remember you burying a piece for the project and saying you couldn't find it in the compost heap. It's so great it has re-surfaced after all this time. It was obviously waiting for the right moment.ReplyDelete
