STRENGTH

So I broke down , caved in and drug out the sewing machine, and succumbed to another addictive art form. AND LOVED IT! I didn't buy anything new either, except some good thread, which is way pricier than the last time I bought it years ago . This was made for a swap, a theme of trees and bookmarks, and I just dove right in. Didn't really know what I was doing, but it felt good not to have lines to go by, and intuition works wonders sometimes....errrr,..... most of the time, I think.
One of the reasons I really wanted to give this a try was because my dear friend Lenna Andrews is a fantastic fabric , mixed media artist. I am fortunate enough to have two of her incredible pieces, and she has profoundly influenced my art and life. She creates absolutely beautiful pieces, and thay make me feel beauty. I really can't explain the way they move me, but it is special. Please check out her blog where you will find all of her links to all of her incredible talents.
Hoping you have a very "STRONG" week, filled with beauty!

Very cool! Your swap partner will love it! (okay, you are in a gazillion swaps, the postal people must love you!) I especially like the leaves hanging down.

Have a great week! Where did the weekend go???

Oh Sharon!!!

Ya done good Little Sis!!! Isn't it just sooooo much fun????? Oh but be careful it can become sooooo habit forming that you will end up with your sewing machine out where it's handy all the time when the mood strikes you!!!! I too was also so amazed at how expensive thread has become. Thank god it's still very cheap here. For a full size spool of thread I have to pay about 50 US cents!! :)

Sharon, I'm so happy you took the plunge and broke out that sewing machine...there's NO stopping you now! Makes me want to dig mine out and take a 101 class! I just know this is only the beginning for you....
Any chance you might consider making more of these bookmarks for your Etsy shop?? :-)

Just got back from a quick visit to Lenna's blog. Thank you for introducing me to another wonderful artist - I can totally see her influence in this awesome piece, Sharon. It's almost wants to make me pull out my old Singer! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Sharon, it is a book mark of great beauty and meaning. I often think of trees as venerable old souls that have stood the test of time with great strength. You have captured that.

Diane said...

Oh my goodness, Sharon is there anything you can't do?! :)

What a beautiful bookmark! What great talent you have with the sewing machine as well! I love how you formed the tree and the leaves and branches.
