This has been a wonderful month of sharing with my fellow artists.
I received this beautiful fabric piece from Karen K. of Embroidery Swaps. It was a trade for Pincushions! How creative to make not only a gorgeous teacup and saucer pincushion, but she included 14 spools of Sulky thread in border pockets! The second photo shows the beautiful "flower" that is formed with the removal of the threads! A very generous creation of both talent and time!!! I will treasure it!
Georgianne also created a fun Pincushion! When the Swap was posted, I asked if we could request a particular design...No. I visited my local Quilt Shop and requested a class on making Cupcake Pincushions....well, we know how what we wish for often comes true....I was so delighted to receive a Cupcake Pincushion so nicely created!
ARTASTICS - THREADS
Life's Journey is a mural of Threads.
The threads of my mural are influenced by my spiritual practices, personal values, the love of friends, and special people that have been my guides. They are strengthened by my husband's love and support. The colors are brilliant with the influence of my enthusiasm for continued exploration for meaning and truth.
My threads will continue to weave their unique patterns as I explore life's roads, paths, alleys, and avenues. My beliefs will provide many hues as I continue search for a personal meaning of my existence. Artistic challenges and accomplishments will add the sparkle!
The colors radiate the pulse of my life. There is a rhythm to the design. I have danced, whirled and twirled, even stumbled, but, I do have style!
I am excited about sharing the developing design with you through this Blog.
