Two more days until my show opens! That means that the knitting part is basically over (a relief), and I’m up to my knees in stitching things together. To save time at setup, I came with many larger pieces of the installation already assembled, but now it’s time to attach all of those to the ground and sew on all the extra little bits that will hopefully make the whole thing interesting.
I started with the river—here it is halfway stitched on.
The difficult part about the assembly isn’t so much all the stitching, but it’s the leaning way out over the table to sew on the stuff in the middle. All this back-bending backstitch isn’t my favorite thing, but I’m sure I can endure a couple of more days of it.
Tomorrow will bring more stitching, and then something needs to go on those white gallery walls too…
