Fiberactions

This time the challenge word was Memory for the online art group Fiberactions. It made me think of the photo I had of my mother and her parents. They sure did glamour photos then! I transferred it to pretreated fabric, then strip pieced a frame around it. The laces are all old and the buttons Mother of Pearl. The fabrics are Oriental silk samples and decorator fabrics.

Thanks to everyone who commented on the last blogs. I always appreciate the comments but right now can't remember who I responded to-back from the trip and not caught up. It's exciting but tiring to play with a 3 and a 10 yr. olds. We sewed a pillow, ran the dogs, and shot arrows-must be like riding a bike-I could still hit the target.

It's lovely! The colors and textures make it a very sentimental and reflective piece.
