"Life is Now" (Vodafone catch phrase)
I live by that.
Happy New Year!
|Blue and orange,|
great colour combination.
|There is a good example of this |
one on their web site (see below)
I can see that made up into a quilt.
|My class mate's finished altered book|
|An example of an altered book |
the teacher brought in from the
Globe and Mail, 2010
|The same friend's altered book taken from a different angle.|
|Shoe display at BHV department store in Paris|
|Altered book in a window display in Paris, France.|
|Here I have folded the flattened tube and sewn across the top. |
You will be sewing on the good side of the fabric.
It seems odd but you are doing it correctly.
|This is the back view. You will have made a "hood".|
|This is the view from the front. |
If you added a tassel there would be one hanging from the point.
|A view of spectacular Verona.|

|My latest baby quilt…of course I made it using my scraps!|
|I used small triangles to cover the |
opposite corners of a rectangle. I didn't measure these.
I love all the colours.
I put it together using my quilt as you go method!
(which I will be teaching out in Peterborough in February
at the Kawartha Quilters Guild))
|I save all the triangle bits left over |
from other quilts in a glass jar ready to use.

|On the back I added three maple leaves (very Canadian) because she was born in the Fall|
and because she shares her birthday with two other cousins!

|Santa Rosa's image was used and altered with drawing and collage.|
I understood it to be about the tension between Catholic devotion
of the country
and the real life horror of the armed conflict (1980-2000).
The group also made collages from waste,
processions of alters made from trash.
Their art found no place in Lima.

The triangular roof is installed over the courtyard of the building.
It's an odd sensation being inside a building but really being outside!
|Ruins from the ancient temple Huaca Pucllana.|
Notice the bricks are set vertically.
|My friend Gail decorates her garden with vintage tea cups.|
|La Stanza del Tè, translated is The Tea Room, |
an art piece by italian Maria Teresa Sansotta.
made with tea bags, fabric scraps, crinoline,
approx. 1m x 1.40m
It was a present to me from the artist
for my 25th wedding anniversary.
|The tea ingredients, |
including scones and fancy sandwiches,
always come in a fancy box!
|Bought at the beautiful Tudor Liberty Store in London, England.|
|Alice and her work taken at the TOAE a few years ago.|
|My piece in progress|
|Alice explains using a sample piece.|
|I made this small piece on day 1 and the next day, I made a |
larger piece that was so much more mature! (seen below)
|My piece entitled "Three Days"|
13" x 17"
It is almost impossible to photograph
an art piece that has a glass cover
because of the reflection
so the colours are off and you can't
really see the copper pieces...but
you get the idea.
|A harvest of creativity.|
