This is a slow going piece of art (I believe it will end up artful – I was filled with that skepticism that often arises at the mid-point of a project until the leaves were added).
The tree has been planted. Leaves have bloomed and drifted to ground in the rain storm.
The tree is hand-dyed wool; the leaves are hand-dyed silk. Both pieces of fabric were purchased.
This completes the top.
Next up: I’ll select a backing fabric (in grey), make a quilt sandwich, and start quilting, followed by binding, printing the poem on fabric, and hand stitching the poetry label to the back.
If you come back next week, I’ll share whatever progress has been made.
Do you ever question the art you’re making?
