Time Is TIcking On...

...and the 100 fundraiser for the American Cancer Society is approaching (Wed 4th February, to be precise). You can find all the information you need on here,  and a quick selection of the work that's on offer (for only $100 dollars per piece) can be seen here.  I'd intended to post more often, but have been overtaken by events and illness.  Hope this makes up for it...


I thought I'd show you some close ups of the work I'm submitting this week, unveiling the whole piece on Saturday.  The first image has already appeared on Facebook, as a taster...or is that a teaser...?  Either way, here it is.



The work is made from pieced, hand dyed cotton.  This section features a discharge dyed section, delineated in ink, and is closer in colour to the original to the version on FB.  The next section is below:

This section is much more complex.  The top section is discharge dyed, the right hand side, a section of a monoprint, the middle section is made up of dye painted cloth, some of which has drawings on it.  I still work in this way, but on a smaller scale, usually.

So, as I asked my friends on Facebook... can you pick out a theme here?  There have been a few answers already, some of which capture part of the story of this quilt, others which tell the stories that others see in it.  There is, of course, no real right or wrong.... but it's fun to wonder....

more images soon...
