A new beginning. For a new home portrait. I am honored to be working on this new commission which will attempt to preserve a memory of a childhood home...
I have many many decisions ahead of me. Right now I'm fondling the fabrics, petting the birch bark and staring at photos. Something will start jumping out at me soon. Stay tuned!
|as usual I am in love with the ephemera put into my possession|
|brocade and burlap make me happy|
|a page from a book and old photos|
|hand dyed linens? what a treat!|
|lovely daisies and sturdy upholstery fabric|
|and birch bark!! yes birch bark! I'm so excited to stitch it!|
|shall I use the image with the flagpole just like the old photo?|
|or the one with the lamp post?|
|what about the glorious red maple?|
|or the lovely rock wall in the garden?|
