on the table

Items in progress on the coffee table.

This fragment from the larger Middle Passage series is nearly done.
A little bag in progress… not sure how I’ll construct straps yet.

I shipped these 2×2″ squares to Jude Hill on Thursday as part of her “Magic Feather” project.
This one was too big, so it’s a keeper:

It’s a real lesson in scale, because at four by four instead of two by two, this little shape is decidedly more moon-like than stone-like.

    A moonstone of course–I just came in from the lightning, thunder and gushing downpour a few minutes ago….not the same storm, I think, unless it was moving terribly swiftly!

    oh those greens up above are so vibrant, beautiful and yet another bag! and the stones are excellent, the blues give off such a different energy, the moonstone is quietly moving; I too have started sewing stones and found the first to be quite a challenge….

    That storm never quite materialized here… I WANTED it to storm, but it just threatened… Moonstone! Of course, now why didn’t I think of that?!! The lavender patches of fabric, BTW (I know Jude asked for blue) LOOKED blue down in my cellar studio… I decided they were close enough to blue to send (and MUCH better than the first stones I did, which were brown and looked like shit smears! really!! they were 4×4, too – thankfully, I re-read the directions). And, yes, I threw them out. No need to keep those kind of swatches around!
