I know I haven't exactly DONE anything in fiber lately...ok, for months....but I swear I haven't actually given it up. I've been asked to send details of what I'm going to bring to the Tutors' Display at the National Quilting Symposium in January. This is rather embarassing, as the work is not actually FINISHED yet. However, I don't let little details like that stop me. I am going to show this diptych, entitled Otago 1 and Otago 2. Otago 1 (above) is made in vibrant hand-dyes, and represents the past of the region. The appliqued shapes are all black, and show extinct or legendary creatures.
Otago 2 is in more muted painted fabrics, and the appliques are native birds and animals which are found in this, my adopted region. The pieces will be hung side-by-side.
