My proposal for an embroidered panel is a sort of accordion book which is in grid form. The panel is the whole book which will measure approx 16 inches long by 11 inches wide. As a panel it can be hung from 3 brass rings sewn into the backing at lower roof level.
The inspiration for the media book came from the photo I took of the little houses. They were lined up on a mantlepiece in a cafe we visited on holiday. I fell in love with them.
The embroidered panel will be of media houses.
House 1 will have roof tiles made from old photographs.
The house will be fabric paper with scanned images of radios from the images I made in photoshop for the media book. It will have a little grid for a window and maybe an opening door.
The structured garden will be made from strips of handmade paper with silk waste and knitting tapes applied as in the sample. The strips will be woven and then stitched to the dyed scrim. Further embellishment awaits the eyeball procedure - I am considering paper beads from the handmade paper or little lace flowers stitched and dissolved - or a few twinkly beads.
The gates at the bottom of the garden will be two joined elaborate F's to look like wrought iron - made from wired cords.
House two has newspaper tiles, books for the house and a formal garden in a regular pattern. The sample with the curly f's is a possible - but I'm also leaning to squares of paper with flower stitching with cords around joined in a grid on dissolvable material. The wrought iron gates will have the J pattern.
House 3 has video tiles for the roof- tv walls and a tangled garden of layered machined cords full of junk - the gates are broken.
The panel is joined at roof level and with 3 rows of machined cords.
The proportions of each house follow Fibonacci 3" roof - 5" house 8" garden making a length of 16" for each section of the panel. Panels are 3" wide with an inch gap between, making the panel 11" wide.
