low tide

The stitching is now complete and a few new embellishments have been added. It has probably been about a year, working on this on and off, and I think it is finally finished.

Background fabrics are assorted shades, weights and textures and include blueberry-coffee dyed cheesecloth. Embellishments include:
lace bits and fiber scraps
yarn and yo-yo's
paperbeads under produce netting
buttons and beads
a decoupaged washer
shells from a North Carolina beach

different stacks

Corrine posted hers here. I'm not a participant because mine are fabric and not paper but after looking at hers and after following the link to Seth's Stacks I noticed this little group of ATCs and other small fiber pieces I already had stacked on a shelf in my studio.

what I actually did

watched the sun rise
watched the sun set
and basked in moon glow

Despite intending to work on the log cabin blocks during the week, I did not sew a single stitch.

what I meant to do

I cut an assortment of dark and light fabric strips and background squares, and packed scissors and thread.


These berries were from weeds pulled from my backyard and I have no idea what they are. Not having time to do anything with them before we left for vacation,  I left them out to dry.

They now look like this.
This aren't the same kind of berries she used, but these results are inspiring.

I've been away but am now home and trying to catch up. I did manage to create an inchie for this week's Every Inchie Monday word which is sparkle.

Sparkle Days Studio comes to mind when I think of sparkle.

feathers, rain and trees

It rains and rains and rains. 
Two trees are down and this one bounced off the house.

Two feathers are now on their way to jude.
