Louise Bourgeois


Unfortunately I can't remember how I found out about the book of Louise Bourgeois, The Fabric works but it arrived today from our fantastic national library. It is a very extensive book with lots and lots of pictures. I made some pictures and collected them in this collage for reference and idea material. I find the work of Louise very intense and at times overwhelming but I do like the books she made from fabric. 

If you have a chance to order it from your library I would certainly recommand it.

Enjoy your day with the book that is waiting for you.

Grandma Moses



Grandma Moses is one of my favorite folk-art painters. The other day I found this short movie about her and you know my love of sharing. Enjoy!

Napkins



Now that a number of spoons are ready I decided to start with the napkins. They are made from the same paper and the stitch will also match with the spoon. Getting really excited as I see this idea grow although it still takes a few months before the first one gets to its completion.

Happy days!!!!

Preparation


No accidents happend and so one happy embroider can show you another version of the seven generations symbol. It is absolutely wonderful to work on it each time around. Just love how in this case the blue slowly fades into white.

Hope you are enjoying yourself just as much.
