It’s been a crazy week, full of ups and downs, and now I have arrived at Saturday. My sister (one of three) is arriving from BC this afternoon for a week in the big city, so that’s definitely something to look forward to.
I really feel a difference when I don’t have protected creative time incorporated into my life, so my goal this weekend is to get some of that time carved out and make something. It must remain secret for the time being, with the holidays quickly approaching.
I made this owl wall hanging – titled “Watchful Guardian” – specifically to donate to the United Way silent auction at my workplace, which will take place this week (Dec. 8). I hope there’s some interest in it. I continue to explore techniques for creating bird imagery with fabric, a lovely way to combine two passions.
I also contributed a miniature (5″ x 7″) textile landscape, matted and framed, which is shown below.
I learned this technique in a workshop with Valerie Hearder, several years ago.
