Something old...

No new work to report, so here's one of my earlier works which was selected to be shown in the "Birds Aplenty" exhibition in 2004. The stylized birds are based on a Maori bird design, with a background of woven strips.

The second piece uses the same bird design in a reverse applique style with woven corners, and including a comemrcial marbled fabric. This was my "weaving" phase!

Hi,

Great Quilts!

How is the leg? I am glad you have kept the crafting juices flowing.

My son 3 weeks ago blew his knee at gymnastics practice. He had the first surgery on friday and will have another in six weeks. He attends a university that is part of a medical school so he get very good care.
