Fear of Cutting

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008

I spent way too much time today thinking and over thinking how I wanted to cut my fabrics to start on the Dead Sea piece. I sketched and fretted. Finally, I just had to do it. First I fused every thing. I thought about piecing this, but I can be more free in manipulating the curves and design if it is fused.

Here are some of the elements that I have constructed so far.

And here is another piece; I added metallic white and copper bits.

M & M have no school this week. Tomorrow, we are taking Miles out for his birthday adventure. We are going to the Lego store and out to lunch. I hope to remember to take my camera. We love to have time with each of the kids on their own. It is really precious time.
