painted and stitched art quilt......


It is a self portrait, though it doesnt look like me, it feels like me....It is painted on a magazine subscription card and then attached by sewing to orange dupioni silk....I like it, it feels like I wanted it to. The kids and I are all sick with colds and fevers...We are going to head off to bed early. Something that never happens here!
