the mayhem within

No, 'Studio's' magazine is not going to be banging on my door any time soon..
piles and piles of ideas stacked up waiting for fruition..

Ah yes, there's my inspiration board.. I think I can just see it from here...

hmmm... what is this? an idea? possibly.

and of course, my work horse and my trusty side companion. revving their engines.. ready. set. go.

stitch + applique..

While going through some photos of some recent work, I came across this piece which was a commission for a dear friend..
I so enjoyed doing it, and it was immediate inspiration when I was told to whom and what the subject was.. can you guess?

the recipient was an ex-Spanish teacher... ! That's a pinata getting the royal treatment there..

"Fiesta" was appliqued, machine and hand stitched, quilted and embellished. Approx. 30x48"..
I love when heart meets mind, meets hands, and it all seem to come together effortlessly..
