The project in process that is pictured below is mine, for me, and whoever else gets to enjoy it. The work is guided by the colors, the shapes, the stitches and whatever feels right to me. It makes such a wonderful balance to the work that I “have to do.” All the fabrics here are colored by me with materials from nature. The thread is commercial silk…such a glow. Here is my progress:
