August Shenanigans!

Yes, yes indeed, I finished embroidering Matt's ice-dyed silk shirt in time for the opening of the embroidery exhibition at artisan (not that anyone noticed...) Slip of the Tongue, by Sarah Bottomley, seen at the Stitch Cult exhibition 'captures moments of physical tension between two bodies'. Honestly, the best, and most engaging piece I saw there.......

The fabulous shirt was also worn at the event it was made for, Peter Wojciechowski's birthday celebrations, on the weekend just past.
The gathering was themed 'Mad Shirts and Mu-Mu's,' so I not only made Matt's shirt, but embroidered and beaded a yoke for a kaftan type dress made from beautiful digital print silk bought at the TAFE fabric sales for myself. Janet warned me she was bringing out the legendary false eyelashes, so I dug up a pair from my own collection - oh my goodness - such a bizarre feeling!! She was wearing her Mickey Mouse ears - I have no idea what we were talking about here!!
Work continues on the kombi, as it does on the 2019 Wearable Art Mandurah entry for the movement section - I finally get to play with my fighting fish design idea! Only 6 weeks now until WOW - stay tuned to my StudioSvenja facebook and Instagram pages for the decade of design throwback images.
