week 32--fruit

I'm baaack. This week's word (this month's, perhaps? ha) gave me the usual challenges; not only the I-can't-figure-out-what-to-do-with-this-word challenge, but also the issue that I took my sewing machine to a machine dealer/repair shop/quilt shop yesterday for a tune-up and won't have it back for a week. (At the shop, I proceeded to buy a bunch of fabric for a quilt--now I can't sew it together!) So I had to make this piece without a sewing machine. A friend wants to borrow my felting machine so I decided to use it quick before I pass it on.

Wool, hand-dyed (by someone else) cotton batting, glass beads, pigma pens, pencil, on cotton osnaburg, wool yarn edging.


week 31--sharp

Hey--remember me? Yeah, I'm still out here. This project is delayed for the same old reasons; I'm okay with it so you should be, too.
For this week (okay, it's not really for THIS week, but you know what I mean), I serve up the word 'sharp'. I had a very hard time figuring out what to do with it, but once it came to mind (yesterday), it was easy. This art/craft is full of sharp implements; laid out just right they look vaguely like a table setting.

Seam ripper, rotary blade, needle, pin, scissors, all held down with Fireline thread; machine-stitching over cotton.

Bon appetit!
