another project i am working on this summer is hand applique shapes. oh how i love hand stitching! the shapes are loosely based on words, with the letter E being the place where i cut a circle. the base of the squares is cotton linen from used clothing. the applique shapes are flannel and soil noile.

here are some more images of the compost drawing. i placed some osnaburg cloth and linen in my compost last summer and let it sit for about a month. then i took it out and rinsed it in water, dried it in the sun, pressed. over the past year, i have been playing with it off and on, trying to get the right composition. last week i poured some tea over it and let it dry in the sun some more. i think it's finished now.

...a snapshot of my studio today. does anyone use the term 'snapshot' anymore? making patches out of scraps - one of my favorite things to do. hope to sell them at the MECA holiday sale this winter. yes, i am planning ahead:) i stitched my index finger to one of the pieces while free-motioning with the bernina...not the first time i've done that, but still a big shock and kind of bloody. i won't try to sell that piece!

in my sculpture class we received bundles of hospital blue wrap from partners for world health. our assignment was to find creative ways to use the sterilized blue wrap, which gets disposed of in large amounts. here is my woven cowl.
partners for world health takes unused sterilized, hospital supplies and distributes them to third world countries. they have volumes of durable, sewable, easy-to-cut blue wrap - great for all sorts of projects!

i have been wanting to make a flip doll for a long time. i wanted to make the doll represent the 7 deadly sins and the 7 virtues. i put together a few prototypes, made of cloth. then i decided if i really wanted the contrast of sins and virtues, i needed to go over the top. one side is made papier mache and the other is made of cloth.
