wow Grace - these are all amazing. I am especially drawn to the last one with the circle and blue center - and the light shining through...

oh fabulous recap of the week grace! so amazing the pieces that are coming into existence.

i just commented on your cutout post on cloth to cloth, and i got totally lost in your portal of blue...

they are all beautiful! but that last one hanging in the window looks sacred... speaking long ago secrets...

and this how i plan to hang my window quilt too from a branch.

captcha word :godgi:

I change my mind. I wouldn't do anything to the one in the window. Love it as is, light shines through marvelously. Simple yet striking. Your work says something to me, even if you sometimes are critical. :)

helen, smile to you too. I
KNOW self-critical...been there.
what it is about the stripy plaidy
one ISN'T that...it just isn't
"me". but none the less...a very
good experiment and i'm not done with it yet.
the other, window...i wish i'd
taken more care with the drawing.
i got tired and careless at the end, and i think what it might WANT
is coming in the next "embellishment" sections coming up, or maybe even in the
Spirit Cloth workshop.
I like it when i am questioned about anything....so....
thank you.

in particular, i love the circle... but love the use of different types of fabric in all of them... and you will come to make them your own... i wish i could be a little mouse in the corner of your class! it will be fun to see what you have accomplished when i get back... see you in a couple of weeks... i will miss you. love...
