Pins and Needles… how did I ever have a sewing studio without these little hedge hog pin cushions. The directions came with the Superior University materials last month and I finally assembled them today – a joyful addition to my sewing corner.

I’ve moved my blog from the blogger web site to this WordPress.com site. I think it will make viewing easier for a variety of web browsers. Let me know if it works for you!
Yesterday our Art Elements group met with Lyric Kinard for a discussion on shape. We prepared by looking at shape in a variety of art work. Here is a sample that I studied and used to create a similar composition. Gustav Klimb, Tree of Life, uses rectangular shapes that create a framework for action and movement on the tree of life. I created a similar composition using a thermofax screen print of Bach music which creates movement in the center of the piece. Screen prints of violins add a solid shape on each side. The thread painting at the bottom anchors the piece. In the second piece, I angled the shapes and stitched at an angle to show movement through the piece. Just a beginner….
Still Life – working on size and proportion. I may use some colored pencils to color it in. We’ll see.
