Another problem with being offline for four weeks was I had signed up for some great classes with Jude Hill of Spirit Cloth and was unable to get to the class forum....its been fun catching up though and seeing what everyone else has been up to.
This piece I created as part of my Spirit Cloth Class. It is called "Ro's Moon" as the beautiful felted moon was a gift from my dear friend Ro Bruhn and became the inspiration for this piece. Click for a closer look.... just love this felted moon. Ro has more of these on her blog if you want to pop over to take a look. "Ro's Moon"
This piece also contains some other special pieces gifted from friends and bought online....beautiful hand dyed silk ribbon, a gift from Dot. Beautiful indigo dyed fabrics bought from Glennis (Shibori Girl).
Another little patch I stitched to add to Ro's Moon. I have decided to make a small quilt/wall hanging using various moons that people have gifted me. I have a delicate hand turned moon from Jude, a Penny Moon from Glennis and I'm sure I will find more fabric pieces I have been given with moons or lunar themes for this special piece.
Oops...this photo is upside down..... doesnt matter, shows the two pieces together. Not sure if they will stay that way or whether they will be separated later when assembling this little wall hanging.
The latest class I am doing with Jude is called "Patchwork Beasts". I am well and truly behind in this class but here is little beastie I drew up. I've since cut it out in fabric and begun stitching...not going too well. Not a great choice of fabrics to try and hand stitch I've decided. I am persevering and will have a photo later...hopefully finished and embellished! Also have some other creatures/beasts on the go. Dont know where this class will lead to...its a fun journey!
And....a few paintings in progress. I MUST make some time to finish a couple of these. The two larger background ones are in gouache on watercolour paper, lots to do to these two yet, and you will remember the pomegranates...got to get those watercolours out again.
Lovely to be back and I am trying to catch up some blog visiting.
WE FORGET HOW MUCH OUR LOVE MATTERS.
WE THINK WE TRAVEL UNSEEN IN THIS WORLD.
ACTUALLY, WE ARE ALL ACUTELY AWARE OF EACH OTHER.
Sending much love....
