sent with love and respect

click the photo to enlarge for detail.
the blue fabric is indigo shibori dyed cotton,
done in a class with jane.
i used polyurethane to preserve the birch twigs from 
our "bit of earth".
and i'm still fascinated with frayed edges,
using this lovely green linen again.
the crows are fused and cut from a commercial cotton print.
the text, written in permanent ink came to me while riding 
the train last weekend.
machine quilted with rayon thread.

  7. I particularly like the birds circling across the fabric, although the darkness of the twigs against that blue is a lovely combination as well.
