Here are the last two 4x6" pieces created from "Life Cycle," as demonstrated in the last post. Dark Night - 4x6"
April Showers - 4x6"
Below are two newly completed UFO's. The first one is presently titled "Pink and Blue" and was painted, hand embroidered, machine quilted. It is 8x10"
This is "Painted Feather" - 8x10" mounted on an 11x14" canvas
The feather and the poem are from one of my journals. The image was inkjet printed on organza, then laid over a piece of hand-painted cotton. The feather was colored in with various colored pencils. Hand embroidered. It's one of my favorites - and it's all pastel and pretty, unlike my standard designs!
Last but not least: Autumn 2008 in PA
Below are photos of a Marsh Hawk that comes around hoping to catch dinner at my bird feeders. So far, I've seen no evidence of her success - no feather remnants floating about the yard. Of course, hawks eat the entire creature... The first photo is the glimpse I caught of her way up in the tree, followed by two closer images.
