The Trees Emerge…
I have been working on my Winter Cloth during these days of freezing, snowy Winter weather. It is slow…meditative…inward. January is good for this.
This was inspired by Jude of Spirit Cloth. http://spiritcloth.typepad.com/spirit_cloth/#tp She has been an inspiration to me…the way she puts her fabrics together…her stitching…her art quilts…amazing!
Tomorrow is the start of her class “Contemporary Boro Workshop” which I will be a part of. I am doing the preliminary work from her video class “Cloth 2 Cloth” and this is a picture of the woven squares that I’ve done so far.
This is the first. It is the backside of a fabric to give a softer look. Other layers will be put on it with threadwork on top of that.
I will baste this together and then it will be ready for the next step.
