I've been working on a series of fiber pieces and finished piece #1. It's titled "Moon Garden"and is 9"x34".
Besides a few handpainted bits, it's made entirely out of scraps I scrounged--old sari fabrics and scraps left behind at a quilting store. Nothing makes me happier than making something for nothing!
I began this piece in a workshop with Sue Benner. She is a fabulous teacher and artist, and I was inspired to try her technique of working with fusible web to create the spontaneous, painterly look I was after. I ran into some challenges by trying to incorporate soft, frayed edges and handstitching along with the fusibles, but I like the effect, so will continue to experiment along those lines.
