Last week I enjoyed making this small landscape to give to a friend for her birthday. I think it's about 5x8ish. Hand painted background, hand dyed applique pieces, embroidery and a bit of hand writing that says "wishing you celebrations on every horizon."
I got a lovely message from her yesterday, so now I can share it with all of you.
I did some more small landscapes yesterday and they looked like crap. I've already hidden them away so I don't feel like wretching when I look at them. (But I didn't actually throw them out. There may be some redemption for them eventually.)
Today I did some small pieces using the frayed hems of some old jeans. They turned out much better. One will make it's way to Houston for Fiber Art for a Cause.
As we all know, some days are more inspired than others.
