Wish me luck chaps, I’m going in…
Yes, after considerably longer than I originally thought it would take, I’m now getting nearer to the centre of the splodge.
Remember when it started…
And now in the best Jules Verne tradition, I’m going into the middle.
It won’t stay in the frame now, so I’ve taken to lying on the sofa with it propped over my knees – I hesitate to think what the nosey neighbours think I’m doing.
Hope I’ll have something complete to show before too much longer. If I’m not back before July, send a search party.

That’s very kind, thank you.
Oh, it is looking so great!
Thank you. x
Exactly how big is this splodge?
It is a wonky 22″ square in total. I’m starting to think of it as an oil spill.
Beautiful! I admire your long term dedication and the title is perfect! Love the texture. If everyone could touch it, as I’m sure everyone wants to, it would really be an oil spill! Have you ever heard of the book “The Rainbow Goblins”? It’s a rainbow spill, not an oil spill!!!
I’ve just been looking up ‘Rainbow Goblins’ – not one I was familiar with, but thank you – yes, I can understand a desire to capture colours. You’d be welcome to touch the tapestry – in fact I think the way the texture develops as the stitches are worked, is the thing I most enjoy about making them.
Wow……that’s some pretty amazing stitching……..I LOVE it!
Thank you – I thought I’d finish it over the weekend, but we actually got some sunshine, so I weeded the garden instead!
