An Example of Art Imitating Life?

Looking out a window today, I noticed that

this quilted wallhanging I made last fall seemed to reflect the view.

My appliqued leaves are in a grid imitating the mullioned windows in this house. Even the colour of the leaves is duplicated in one of my fabric choices...along with the finer details I embroidered onto the leaf. It really looks as if the idea for this wallhanging came from the view looking out these old windows, doesn't it?

  3. I love the leaves in your wallhanging, the embroidery is so well done! It is really inspiring.
    The book from Tone is from 2000, it is called "Tildas Paske", I hope you can get it!

  4. It's funny how things in our life repeat, or match up, isn't it?

  5. It really does reflect the outside.

    I love the selvaged edge bag. It turned out so cute and would be really fun to carry around.

  8. How neat!
    I love that leaf wall hanging. I remember it because I'm pretty sure that it was what started me on my machine applique obsession. LOL

    Such beautiful details on the veining.

  9. Katherine,

    I just clicked on your link at Anna Maria Horner's site, because I noticed you are a fellow Albertan!

    I'm so glad that I 'stumbled upon' your site as well. It's lovely. Although I'm not much of a sewer, I can certainly appreciate the creativity of this art form. Both my mom and a good friend are beautiful sewers, so I'm sharing your blog with them.

    I love beauty and I marvel at all the wonderful sites where fellow bloggers share their love of creativity on-line. I think blogs are the best thing ever! Even sliced bread (smile).

    I look forward to visiting again. Perhaps you'll drop by my site as well.

    Brenda
