stitching in car day 3

In the morning we visited the cahokia mounds in south western Illinois. These were made by native Americans between 900 and 1150 AD. Shown above is the Monks Mound. The interpretive centre is awesome, full of wonderful artifacts, dioramas and information. In the evening we walked this contemporary labyrinth in New Harmony, Indianna. The afternoon was spent at my cousin Jane's iris farm near Wayne City, Illinois. The whole day was very spiritually nourishing. Well worth the highway hours.

Your stitching always surprises me...so imaginative and very soothing. I love how you have 'caught' those longer stitchers. Inspirational cloth.

Beautiful trip...thanks for sharing it with us.

Amazing what you see when you aren't really looking.

I have been looking for my voice in art quilting, trying different techniques and seeing what feels good. As I sat on the couch doing handwork the other night I realized I already had my voice! I like surface technique augmented by hand stitching. Gee, I guess I want to be you when I grow up. LOL

the stitches are wonderful and looks like it is a great trip and you are getting a lot done as well, I loved snake mound in ohio, just amazing mounds and they give off such vibrant energy...

I love the patterns repeated in the stitching, pot, and labyrinth - great concentric circles and spirals. I'm quite obsessed with these patterns right now... lovely cloth!

Your cloth looks like the labyrinth, although you obviously had already started it! How amazing. Lovely surface, wish I could reach in and touch it.
