this year i decided to create a piece on behalf of the ABK Weaving Center.
this is what the board looks like when you first pick it up.
i had a general idea of what i wanted to do. with a handful of forgotten samplers from the studio, and a couple from my basement, i set out to make a small piece of patchwork.
i knew that i wanted to create at least one general shape out of the grouping. i found a tree. sure, it was the easy way out but i only had 3 days to complete it (due to other responsibilities) and whatever i did needed to be quick.
now the real work begins.
even more flowers, cheeries on the tree and a frog that i was unsure about but which gl insisted " had to be there" (can't argue with a 7 year old)
a river, with fish, and a small vegetable garden
sun and clouds
a couple more little additions and it was done. i nailed it to the board with small finishing nails and then wrapped it with gold wire.
i'll be at the ball on the 19th taking pictures. come on out and buy some art. i know i will be. maybe i'll see you there.
