just as I am beginning to
write a new article for submission
my bird quilts in the
Winter 2011 issue
we collectively use birds as metaphors to describe people and relationships
and with these quilts I wanted to
explore and express current feelings and relationships
with family and friends...
these first three pieces are
roughly 8" x 8"
"fly in all directions"
the small pieces below measure
5" x 5"
and they are all hand stitched on Khadi paper
with antique ephemera
and grey sari ribbons...
ingredients: antique stamps and thread labels, paper ephemera thread, painted papers, stained papers. fabric, lace and acrylic paint.
I am way behind in my postings
so I will be back soon with another post about
the new Pasticcio Quartz Zine
as I have a piece published there as well...
off to the studio dear readers,
I am hoping your day is sunny in spirit...
