FF CAL Day 22-23
Meditating on the Mayan prompt, the images and symbols, i thought about our symbols - alphabet and so i made a letter, then made more letters, then some words.
The chain prompt led to my chain person. It is worked continuously, beginning with the block of chains as instructed, the only break is the waist-cinch chain. I really enjoyed playing with chains! I found some sportweight (yay) and so tried another chart without instructions, but making it a bit short and those are the picot linked leaves.
and my overstock floor blocks arrived yesterday so i can dry and have a tray and rehearse pieces with greater speed and ease. The vine was to be an edging for my middle piece but i think it looks better framing/containing the crazy mesh. The layout helps -- I need to make a bigger O, or cram the letters closer together but it’s interesting to me that this resembles my handwriting.
