Just a sneak peek at a fabric piece I have been working on recently.
This year I have been inspired by some wonderful fabric art blogs. Most notable those of Jude Hill (Spirit Cloth) and Karen Ruane (Contemporary Embroidery).
On Jude's blog she has a section what if which always inspires me, but I always procrastinate and put off doing anything....
Jude will be pleased to know that my what if is ...what if I actually just begin???? And so that is how this piece I am making for a friend started. I love Jude's slow cloths and how they evolve. It still have a way to go, but its getting there and at least I made a start. This piece is only small, but next year I plan to do my own version of a slow cloth for myself.
The Karen Ruane influence is the embroidered flowers that I have added from a piece of embroidered voile I was given. Karen uses a lot of vintage embroideries in her work which make it very special - beautiful piecework and embroidery.
So thank you Jude and Karen for the inspiration for this piece.
As I said, the countdown is on for New Years. I am already making a few resolutions .... such a list I have !!!!
Take care and I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
Wishing you all Peace and Happiness in 2009.
