Birds of a Feather...

These two birds are an experiment in eyelet, silk and sheer. Silks courtesy of Hand-Dyed Fibers.
As a dear friend commented to me, the eyelet stitch does look like polka-dots (*grin*), but that's the camera's fault, not mine...really!!!

Carrying Over ...

In my other blog, I posted about this little medallion. The Battenburg lace is a new endeavor for me -- generally, in the laces department I concentrate on needlelace and pulled-thread techniques. The SRE (Silk Ribbon Embroidery) materials are courtesy of Vikki Clayton at Hand-Dyed Fibers.
You'll remember that fabrics, fibers and founds are what I do. This idea was poking at my thoughts processes, so I decided to try it. For a first attempt, I don't think it's too bad -- you get the idea that it's a medallion shape. The reason I'm publishing it here, also, is because it's beginning a tie-in point that I've been kicking around for a while, so I wanted to present it.

These types of ideas will continue to be shared here, as well as my various pieces as they come off exhibition.

Please continue to share my walk along the circuitous and tumultuous path of fiber art discovery and let me know how you interpret my work. All comments are most welcome!

Disclaimer, sort of!

Well, some of the stuff on which I'm currently working can't be shown until after November 2008 due to exhibit commitments. Although, actually I'm so thrilled to have these opportunities! Do take a moment, however, and click on the 'Breaking Traditions' button there in my sidebar and view some of the lovely work that others in the group have done recently. More later!!
