and listing a few others in my much-neglected etsy shop.
you see i have so many varied artistic interests that i sometimes get sidetracked launching new projects.
so i have started a pad with a list of the things i REALLY want to make. ofcourse, i continue to stray once in a while, as when i stopped one night to sew this indigo beaded moth.
it ultimately went on to win an award on flickr's explore with over 12 thousand views worldwide.
or when i stopped to paint this sympathy note for the tragedy of MH 17 for my dutch friend Hans Peter.
i have also been putting together some packages to thank a number of friends who have sent me some wonderful handmade gifts, such as lynne hoppe who sent me a couple of originals
and rebecca brooks who sent me the most gorgeous saughtered double-sided shrine ro hang from my ceiling fan
in turn, her gifted prompted me to stitch these scapulars
what do you think of this new technique i ventured into? my daughter and son are both modernists and i wanted to make tatiana something for her apartment. what a contrast to what i usually paint huh?
proof once again that we are all a gift to each other.
as my friend hans peter so wisely write to me the other day
"This 'us & them' finds its roots, i believe, in the illusion that there is a separate 'me'. The older I get, the more i realuze: i am you, i am this bird, i am this tree, i am this stone."
