At last nights Guild meeting we were each given a 6 inch steel ring. Why? Well, the Guild is having a national exhibition at the Weald and Downland Museum in July. Each member can submit a piece of work that will fit within the 6 inch ring (the ring making up part of the exhibit).
So, what to do? Apparently it can be three dimensional or flat. So I bought an extra ring so I could experiment! But looking at the ring I was so uninspired. I mean, where do you start? However, on the 30 minute drive home the ideas came flooding. I first thought of a crescent, needle felted moon, with a star hanging within the ring. I've since thought of a full moon, in 3-D with the dark side shown too. But then my ideas became a little more ambitious (as they do!).
I then spent a couple of hours browsing ravelry, and found some beautiful crocheted applique motifs, and thought of doing something along the lines of fairy tales, but then discovered the patterns were in chinese, or something similar. But I now think I have decided on two themes. For a 2-D creation it will be themed, "under the sea", and for the 3-D one it will be named "shhh" and is inspired by a picture by the very talented Jacqui.
I'm all for a challenge, and hope some others I know will be taking part. Exciting times!!
