Fear of Cutting

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.

    Your trip to Israel was certainly fertile ground for your creativity, Gerrie! I am awed by the number of pieces you have done lately as a result. Beautiful – look forward to seeing the next steps.

    Can’t wait to see how this one develops. This really is fun to watch each one from its conception.

    Hope you had a fun day with Miles!

    I like where this looks like it’s going. I’m getting the crusty layers aspect. Have I mentioned yet that I think each one of these quilts is better than the last? I can’t wait to see them all together — it will be a wonderful collection.
