I haven't entirely neglected my Skyros Men. Circumstances over the last weeks have meant I've found less time to sit at the large frame in which my last panel is mounted. I've been away a bit and needing projects I can carry with me, or work in other parts of the house.
I have, however, managed to sit and complete bits of the tenth man on and off over the last few weeks.
Admittedly, Bokhara is more a Turkish influence - but there was Turkish influence on Skyros. I am playing the role of an embroiderer from other parts of the Ottoman Empire engaged to work on Skyros and intent on saving time and remaining motivated!
The Tenth Man is now finished. Two to go - plus a few stray birds and flowers!
