Great Tapestry of Scotland (sneaky peek)

Detail of Artgal's hair

I thought you might like a sneaky look at some of the panels which are being stitched for the Great Tapestry of Scotland.

Some of the stitchers working in and around Glasgow met up with the organisers and artist Andrew Crummy at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. This was to check our progress and order more threads. It also gave me the perfect opportunity to take some sneaky pictures for you.

As you know I’m not the world’s best photographer. Combine this with the low light of a Scottish winter and my photos have not turned out brilliantly however I’m sure you’ll be able to see enough to recognise the amount of time and effort which each stitcher has put into their piece.

If you’d like to see more photos I’ll keep the Flickr group updated and the GTS team are updating their Facebook page all the time. Until then I’ll leave you with a bit more of Dumbarton Rock and our lovely Artgal.
