|October's Eve, 2012|
This is one I will likely not do again, simply because of the sky. This one was hand painted/dyed and just happened to be so fitting for this piece. It was perfect, and completely accidental! I nearly tossed the sky until when I realized how strongly it resembled that night.
Here's a wall hanging I've been tossing around in my head for two years now. It's a topography of the South Saskatchewan river & the farmers' fields. I did one before in raw silks, though there was no river in it. This is just the audition - all the pieces lying on the table. So far I like it. This is how I'll be using all those blue decorative yarns eventually. The fabric pieces you see are all taffeta.
You need to imagine that with lots of stitches : ) It's pretty big compared to my little embroideries. It's maybe 20x30 inches or so?
And then I did a silly thing. I signed up to make 'I Believe in Faeries' postcards for the PostCard Cottage swaps. ugh. I swore I would take a month off because I have so many commitments in March, Oh March. It's pretty much ridiculous. Sooo many commitments. Sew many.
Happy Groundhog's Day!
