Butterfly gets a body

The butterfly has slept soundly for three seasons. Not a caterpillar, but a pair of wings, without a body.

Now with the weaving ideas flowing at Jude Hill‘s Considering Weave class, I am trying out some of the surface weave techniques.

Now of course, over.

I am off to Maine today for an informal writing retreat. Two days.

    What a good exercise of Jude’s technique! I like the way the woven stitches add density and texture to the body, which works well with the fabric of the wings. Me too….have fun on your retreat.

    Dee, I haven’t been commenting lately but I have been keeping on eye on your work and I just love the new pieces with the weave. I hope you are having a fantastic time at the retreat. 🙂
