My piece " Reflections", is a whole cloth, hand dyed cotton fiber, machine quilted piece with leaves stenciled along the base.
"Love it, Don't Leave It" was inspired one day, when I was picking up trash along the road way. Of course, I had to use pop tops, but also some found pieces. I incorporated rubbings with oil paint sticks, hand dyed fabrics, stencils that I made, beading, hand dyed threads and a copper piece I found in the plumbing department at a Lowe's store is used as hanger. It has machine and hand quilting.
We had a good turn out, guitar music and refreshments. I enjoy creating for a Theme, especially when it relates to the area we live in.. I have to focus on the different aspects and sort through a variety of possibilities, gets my creative juices flowing.. Usually it is a short time frame that gets in the way and I need to review what I want to say, it is fun to have a message that the viewers appreciate.
