Well, it's about time.
Some of us...or more accurately, I had some trouble moving forward with this project. This is the most creative group project I have ever been involved with and somehow I just got stuck. I became pregnant shortly after I got her book, and it was as if all my creating energy went to the baby. Anyway, before I knew it...
...I had three of the books in my possession. Clearly, that was not my intention.
Moving on...Ellia's theme for her book is TIME. I started with a vintage calendar towel as my "canvas".
Next, I found some quotes on TIME that I liked and embroidered them onto the calendar swatches.
Then I filled in the areas with images that are symbolic of the different seasons.
Using my favorite mediums, I embroidered, needle-felted, embellished and appliqued.
Little did I know I would have her book through each of the four seasons.
Enough of the macro shots, here is the final spread.
Now, on to Cathy's book.
