A UFO Becoming

Left over scraps of moody hand dyed fabrics from my stash begged to become. Beginning stitches with hand dyed embroidery threads pieced them together but it lay hidden for a while waiting for rediscovery.

A bought with a nasty flu bug has kept me out of the studio with time for hand stitching.  The embroidery is nearing completion and then it will be intensely hand quilted.  It even told me its name but wants it to remain hidden until it says it is done.

Maybe it is Done

I have always been seduced by the cloth. I “see” shapes and images in swirls of color and rust. As a child I created my own alternate reality to entertain myself.

This was a narrow hand dyed cloth that was cut and stitched together. I saw the river and trees at sunrise. Is it a pieced art quilt now or is it a whole cloth quilt? You decide!
