This post is linked to Needle and Thread Network WIP Wednesdays Take a look at what Canadian Fibre Artists are doing this week. I'm also linking up with Off the Wall Fridays. More great fibre art!
|The Sacred Tree|
I managed to mount my tree piece onto a black canvas that I purchased. I think that this will be my contribution to the 'Out of the Box' Stittsville library fibre art exhibition for the month of November. It is based on the book "The Sacred Tree". I have another possibility - a piece I have been working on with prairie grasses and big sky (Who Has Seen the Wind) - but I wanted to do more hand stitching and I am still nursing my injured hand (more physio - sigh!). Yesterday they told me that it will take a long time to heal and my other hand is starting to hurt too, from overuse I guess. So I need to exercise my hands but hand sewing is out of the question for now. I'm trying to stay positive (ie when life hands you lemons, make lemonade, right?)....so here's what I am doing.
I'm also taking photos of the wonderful fall colours outside my door. Last month I decided to trim my maple instead of cutting it down. Today it rewarded me by producing the most gorgeous red leaves ever. Some years they are mostly yellow but not this year.....
And my newly cabled ash tree is brilliantly yellow out in my back yard....I do love autumn!
