I have been continuing to make work surrounding the dark depths of superstitions - namely the sea. This boat, along with an embroidered 'doomed' and seven felt/knitted rats will be completed this weekend to illustrate the superstition of when rats run off a ship, the voyage is doomed. The actual piece will have lots of extra bits as well referring to the downfall, as possibly I will have 13 sugar mice alongside this for people to take home to commemorate the rodents who did not make it.

This work will be exhibited in a show coming up in the next month or so. I am going to a meeting on Monday evening. Show details and final piece will be posted here.
