Gravitation

Introducing my new completed quilt, "Gravitation".  This piece began with one of my hand dyes, which I then pieced, appliqued and hand embroidered.


Here is a detail which shows some of the hand work.  (It was a bit of a challenge to get the stitching to show up.)



And what are you working on?

It's Been a While

Yes, I realize it has been a while since my last post.  I have been absorbed with ongoing extensive hand stitching on this current piece..

work in progress

During hours of the handwork I have interspersed quiet time with some listening to the excellent audio book (Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz- an enthralling mystery within a mystery) and watching the powerful Ken Burns/Lynn Novick Vietnam War PBS series, which was heartbreaking and enlightening.  Do not miss it!

Quilt exhibits of note:  Extreme Quilters of Southern California seventh annual show runs 10/3 - 10/15. with the reception this Sunday, 10/8, from 3 - 5pm at the Thousand Oaks Community Center, 2331 Borchard Road, Newbury Park, 91320.  This talented group of 27 fiber artists always bring out their best.  I can highly recommend it!
