A summer diversion for my stitch story. This week I took part in the Sew Near, Sew Far project at the Bronte Parsonage in Haworth, led by Lyn Setterington.
It was unfamiliar territory for me as I used knitting yarn to stitch my name onto coarse plastic netting, but the effect was bold and pleasing. Lyn is hoping to collect signatures from local people and visitors alike on continuous pieces of plastic net. The net will then be laid out on the Pennine landscape, forming the pen names of the Bronte sisters: Acton, Currer and Ellis Bell.
The new art work will go on display during the first half of October!
