Last week I visited the Nafplion, The Forest Forever Exhibition at Fougaro Gallery. The Forest Forever exhibition is a cultural collaboration between Europen and Afghan women .Since 2014 when it was first showcased in France the exhibition has been touring Europe. And this time we are the lucky one to see these excellent banners and the beautiful embroidery pieces here in Greece ( the exhibition will last till the 15 November).
The 60 participating pieces resemble Banners of the forest. The artist used at least one embroidered leaf produced by Afghan women from the Langhami region in Afghanistan.
All of the works were so beautiful! I wanted to take photos but for my bad luck I had a problem with my camera! ( or maybe a photographer = I, didn’t know to take good photos…)
Anyway Here are few photos I managed with
Here is a general photo from the exhibition
This is a lovely detail from ” Symbiosis” by Marva Stoller from Germany
And this one a detail from ” Visions of leaves” by Judith Pauly
And here two embroideries from Afghan women
About myself and my sewing : My time is very limited because of every day routine. The children are very busy and I am doing Taxi with them. At the moment I am just experimenting with the sewing I haven’t done. I found out that I haven’t done any log cabin block. So I took a look at my scraps and made this one
The funny is that I like the result and could think to make a table runner, but I don’t have dark red fabric I used in block!
Maybe I should add a crow
It seems quite black…
Is it better now?
I don’t know, maybe I’ll leave it for a while. If you have ideas what to do with the block, please tell me!
Have a nice weekend! Anneli
