Continuing, but a brief rest for now


this, i think, is enough for now.

the leaves need to have brown attachment stems to the branch
the rising Sun needs more, as does the silk ray of light
most of all, the chrysalis, or cacoon needs work to resemble more closely the photograph i sent earlier.
it needs shaping and it needs the little decorations of ever so tiny pieces of thorn that the Russian Olive
branch provided. (dianna..the little pretzel looking things)

Did that pretzel thing hatch a moth?? That strange image is still with me.....!

Jacky said...

Grace I love how that branch sort of takes you out of the picture then back in a meandering thought and then concentrating again.

This is lovely.

deanna7trees said...

no problem, Grace. I knew it was me you were talking about. so sad that this class has ended. hope there will be many more from Jude and more beautiful pieces from you to admire.

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

deanna, i am needing this pause.
it has been since mid may and i
have many pieces started but un
finished. i am really wanting to
work on them, going back to the
Cloth to Cloth, see the journey
in these pieces, see where i have
gotten, see where i might need to
go. i also am thinking i need to
MAYBE think in terms of making some pieces that "go together"...
what will i DO with a trillion
do you make large quilts out of
what you create? it's just a
thought, but a thought just the same.

This cloth is so lovely and I can't wait to watch the continuing changes in it! I love the branch going off the left edge! It adds so much...

Deb G said...

Grace, sure do agree about needing a break. It's like it all needs to absorb and stew a bit.... And I have a sweater to finish knitting before fall. :)

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

debi...thanks! and yes...i really
like that too and want to somehow
let blend a little more? i really
am learning from these small
problem solving events. visited
your blog and think of you in school....
