Hair hair everywhere

I have been working hard to complete my new work In the Hold. I decided to connect the waxed hexagonal pieces with my hair. The hair on the table was my hair from when I was a small child. My mother had kept it all these years. It was so long at one stage I could sit on it. I wanted it to be a very personal connection. It was a very difficult and challenging thing to do. It meant I needed to thread the needle 6 times per join. It was tough going on the eyes and patience. I was amazed just how strong the hair was.
