Quilts

 

 

DSCF0492

And just for fun, I make embroidered/quilted wall hangings of my own design for myself, family and friends.

At left: Seven for a Story (2008)

One for sorrow, two for joy,
three for a girl, four for a boy,
five for silver, six for gold,
and seven for a story that’s never been told.

At right: The Heroines: And still we are here (2009) DSCF0487

From top left, clockwise: Marguerite de Roberval from Silence of Stone, Shawnawdithit from All Gone Widdun, Eva Rosen from Dancing in the Palm of His Hand, and Dylan from Flight of Ravens (an unpublished novel).

The wall hangings are about one metre by one metre.
