July 29 - 2016 - MOB I: On the Home Stretch

With the last stitch taken July 29, I realized there are only 11 days left...11 days till and including August 9, when I'll take the very last stitch in MOB I.  The anniversary of which I first spoke will have arrived -- ten years from Howard's death from Type 1 Diabetes (T1D).

Oh my.

And then...

On August 10 the work of "assembly" of the now-in-three-parts installation will begin.

MOB I will have additional quilting done around the body shape, and the will be mounted against a dark background to make it all more visible.

The MOB II squares I've received to date will be mounted in a mobile attached to a grid, enabling each one to be viewed alone and as part of the whole.  There are still several squares out in the world, yet to be stitched and returned.  I suspect some of them may have been lost...or set aside because "life happens"...but this is the ongoing part of this project.  My dream is to have several grids -- several mobiles -- of hanging squares, made from the kits that will be available at the exhibit when it opens in Lacombe in October and at every venue at which it shows.*

As for MOB III...there is one stump sock left to knit, and then they will be "stuffed" to give them shape and form, and prepared for display.

There will be periodic posts -- likely monthly but perhaps more often -- as the assembly process moves forward.  It's not long before the installation, and there is much work to be done.  Onward and upward!

Next Stop: August 9, 2016...
