Drawing with fabric

velvet and rayon couched to felted wool


Before Christmas the Cornerstone gallery contacted me to see if I would mount a small exhibition in their space around the same time as my workshop in Kingston. Even though I was already committed to an exhibition at Greenwood Quiltery in Guelph for the same time period (april-may 2010) I said yes.
It means gathering together two completely different bodies of work and finishing up some pieces. I've decided on circular stuff for Kingston, protection stuff for Guelph.
This abstraction of my view over Manitowaning Bay is now basted to a backing cloth for further stitching.

That's gorgeous Judy, I love the colours, and spirals and circles are very special and meaningful. You are making me want to try some more stitching...I haven't picked up a paintbrush in ages!

How fortunate they are who will get to see these exhibits up close and personal.

Love the saturated colors of the felted circle pieces.

yes - to see them in person!

felt is just beautiful to stitch, I have only done a small amount of stitching to felt, but loved the feel of it so much.

such wonderful colours and swirls.
