I have been back in Toronto for over a week and my suitcase is still on the floor in my dressing room... open... but full!
Today, I made some time to sew.
I made the book wrap for my Umbria journal.
I have the stone walls represented, the cypress trees, the rolling hills, the gorgeous sky at sunset, the red string from the textile-art therapy workshop.
|Piece on the left shows the lining fabric of the wrap.|
And even the olive trees! I happen to find a piece of William Morris reproduction fabric in my stash and although his branches are willows, the colouring and the shape reminded my of the olive trees from Umbria.
I used scraps from Sofia Verna's Ms Emma Designs. Fitting since she taught one of the workshops we did.
I plan to bring it to the Oakville Guild this Thursday when I give my talk.
The theme of my talk is Inspiration. Where do my ideas come from? I hope to inspire the audience!
