As you may have guessed, I have been on a vacation. I went back home to Iceland and had two wonderful weeks there.
When I came back I started another workshop with Jude of Spirit Cloth. I love the community that has developed through these workshops. I posted photos on the workshop forum of my latest piece that I call 'A Feather In His Cap'.
All the fabric in this piece was a gift. I used the fabric to tell a story. The eyes and feather in the above piece were already there...I just emphasised it with stitch. The same thing with the animal below. Many of my cloth mates called it a fox.
These feathers were also on the fabric, I added the stitches.
I got the idea to make this book by something Jude showed us in the workshop.
I asked my cloth mates, whether I should add words to this piece as I had a story in mind or whether I should let the viewer tell his or her own story. Many replied with a story line, based on what they saw when they looked at the images inside the book.
One of the stories was written by Michelle. It is an amazing story. Michelle asked me if she could use some of my images on her blog, as she would like to share the story with her blog readers.
I agreed that the story should be shared and gave her permision to use my photos.
As you look at these photos, do you see a story? If you do I would love to hear it.
Here is the last photo. Now go to Michelle's blog and read her story connected to this cloth. I know you will be as charmed as I was.
I have decided not to use words in this book. I love the stories that people have told themselves when they look at the images they see in this little cloth book.
Are you still here? Go, go over to Michelle's and read her fabulous story.
