Eke Krug – Series #4 – Bits and pieces – Looking for new horizons

When I started the series ‘Bits and Pieces’, I had no idea that it would be such a personal journey. After making the third piece, ‘Looking for solid ground’ comes this one, ‘Looking for new horizons’. Lots of things happened, we found a nice temporarily house in Holland, which will be permanent in October. All our stuff is stored away until that time, just a very little part of my sewing stuff is unpacked. It is nice to live in Holland again, but I have to get used to it too. Bigger shops, much more people, living in a little village now, instead of living in the mountains. Everything has changed, not only the surroundings, but also the way of living. That is where the new piece is based on, starting a new live and looking for new horizons, with the memories of Norway slipping into it.

All kind of fabric scraps, machine threads and hand embroidery thread, batting for tablerunners.

Heavily machine quilted, little hand embroidery
