So earlier this year I posted three pictures of some squares I did for a collage piece. Well, sometimes it takes me a little time to really finish a piece. The middle picture in this collage is a leaf that grows on a grape vine in my back yard. I stitched it on some fabric that I printed on my home computer. I copied onto fabric a lettler that my friend Ethel sent me back in the 90’s. Oddly enough, I still have letters from her and others. I’m glad I saved them. My plan is to have some of them printed at spoonflower.com onto fabric and I can use that fabric in quilts.
This leaf was from a sun dyeing day a couple of years ago. This image was on a larger piece of fabric and I cut it out and stitched it onto this fabric.
The other squares on this piece are various media including water color sketching, mono-printing, sun printing, thread sketching, embroidery. It all come together and I hand stitched it together and then added a button, some bling, and an old key we found in my Mom’s house in Sweetwater, Texas.
