further reflection

Now that I've slept and returned to my "studio", I've decided to tear out my sparkly quilting and try something else. I like the quilting lines, but not the flash. Stay tuned...will probably let this simmer a bit. Post will come along following inspiration!

Thanks for the new word, Penny! The ideas are already churning!

I will have time to comment on all of your wonderful work later today!

Reflection - On American Conflicts

I had other, kinder & gentler ideas for using Reflection that weren't solidifying in my mind. I was/am affected by all the political polarity in our country and all the demonstrations and bombing of American embassies in the Middle East. So what surfaced in my fabric painting and stitiched & fused piecing is a reflection of conflict. I mounted the basic piece on denim that I slightly discharged with bleach. The quilt stitching does not show very well in the photo or on the piece, and I want to try to showcase the quilting itself more on my next piece. But I did have a good time with my acrylic painting and stamping.

I am envious of your northern, autumn weather. It's still too warm here, as usual.
