New Work In Progress - needing a name

It's been a wonderful day so far. I took the weekend off - no classes scheduled and no plans - ah bliss. So I started my day off with coffee and a sticky bun on the deck and then moved into the sewing room and have been buzzing away happily ever since. I made a mug rug to go with the Kindle cover and then started this wall hanging. It's now down to my very least fav part - hand sewing - just hate it. But hopefully I'll get this done while watching TV tonight - tonight's movie is Forbidden Planet - 1956 syfi classic.  I need to go ponder on dinner. 


A Little Give A Way
This piece is un-named - if a name hits you please leave me a comment. The person who comes up with the name I pick out for this piece will win a nice little bundle of fabric. The winner will be announced on May 2nd. So leave as many comments as you like.

"Frets Afire" -- we are in Music City, after all, and that wiry piece reminds me of the neck of a banjo. I've been hanging around pickers lately, and their sounds have that soil-y, sepia vivacity.

So glad you've had such a brilliant day! Great weather for it, too! :-)

I like this piece very much. It reminds me of several things, an insect, copper, sand, warmth, sea foam...

"Memories of Time": The weaving reminds me of our memories, as does the background it sits on. The brown fabric shows a variety of marks, some as gaps, some as layers. The copper speakes to the way memories are held together, supported through aging. Here time is held together, somewhat disguising the memories hidden behind them. They are there, and accessible, but maybe not as necessary, or as easy as we hoped for. Yes, "Memories of Time" is my suggestion.
Let me try this again, goofy thing doesn't want to let me post! :(

I would name your piece "Spirit Dance." As it reminds me of the Kichina Dancers and this one is the Spirit for Creativity spreading its wings and empowering the artistic endeavors of the dancer.

Sewing Withdrawal

With my next jewelry show a mere 15 days away I've needless to say been twisting and hammering to get new items ready. This will be the last show of the year and I really need to get busy with my Christmas sewing. I have 2 projects on the machine cabinet ready to jump into - but that will be after Nov 12 when the show is. I did combine my two loves last week thou when I was at Stefanie's sewing. I started the base for 4 different fiber jewelry projects. I've always wanted to make one of the big fiber bib necklaces and got a good start on that - it's not done yet thou. These smaller mixed media pieces are finished. 

Happy to say that I sold one of my fiber art wall hangings on my Etsy shop today.  It's always such a great feeling to know someone loves your work.  I like making wall hangings and post cards the best.  The freedom of knowing I can put anything into the art and  let my creativity run amuck is a wonderful thing.   So Stars In The Sand is now history.

Sewing Withdrawal

Well it's just been days since I've done any sewing - 7 as of today. I do feel like I'm not quite centered when no creating is going on. I have had time to squeeze in a little doodling but that's about it. 
With Earth day this month I wanted to share the tote bag I made from a bird seed bag.  There was almost nothing left over from the original bag. They only thing tossed out  was from evening up the bottom. The wonderful Edna showed me how to make this. The only thing you need to keep in mind is don't use your regular sewing machine needle. She had me get a leather needle and it worked great. I just used regular thread too. So now Angel has a big old tote for her treasure hunts at the flea markets/yard sales. The handles were cut off the top of the bag above where the pretty bird drawing is. 

This morning I finished up Angel's hand print zen doodle. I used water color pencils to color this in - you use very little water. Just enough to blend the colors. 


And speaking…

It's Cold out - stay in and create

The weather here has been very odd, freezing, 60's, snowing - so my desire to go out is nill. I've been working on jewelry pretty non stop lately. So I thought today I'd do some sewing! Oh my word I'm making little pot holders that are quilted. Don't be shocked. I've not given it up. Just have to get going on the new stuff for 2018. It's time for new designs and new techniques. 
So here are a few of the recent designs. 
I've been playing with smooth river stones and wrapping them in silk. Adding beads, wire and other bits of fiber. 
This one has several layers of silk hand dyed ribbon two hole and single hole beads and some wire wrapping on a leather cord. 
I've had this crinoid stem fossil for years and the other day when I looked at it I decided it's time had come. I added some of my favorite beads.  This was a plant at one time living in the ocean, just think.
Continuing to play with clay and this faux fossil is from my imagination, maybe it'…
