Poppy Quilt on the TA DA!!! LIST!!!!!!


I added a border of a beautiful green batik, added straps for hanging and found the PERFECT curly willow stick! Done, FINI, complete!! Hurray!! It was supposed to be in the mail yesterday!! It's coming Laura!!!






I took this piece in it's unfinshed state, to my workshop with Laura Cater-Woods. She suggested that I not backt he piece as that would cover the lovely (her words) thread picture on the back. I considered her valued opinion and decided to take her advice. I think that I am quite happy that I did!!




I hope that you do too, Laura!!!

Living literally in the woods, this curvy branch gives me a whole range of new ideas for hanging -- so much nicer than going to the hardware store for dowels. Also, the decision about not backing it is genius -- back art!

WOW...........great! and I'm so glad that you didn't cover up the thread painting on the back! When did you sneak in a class with Laura? Did I miss that post??

Elizabeth - it is so, so gorgeous! I clicked on the photograph to enlarge it so I could see all the detail.
You are so talented. Laura will love it. And that willow adds the perfect touch.
Am always blown away by your talent and passion for life and art!

It's wonderful!! "the thread picture on the back" ... oh, I like that. It opens up a whole world of possibilities for calling something "finished!"

This is truly lovely. I was glad to see the photo of you holding it, because I didn't know the size till then. If you mentioned it earlier, I didn't catch ti.
