I have been doing a deep clean and purge of my studio this past month, and it has not been very fun, but needed. Basically getting rid of things that I will never use, and there is plenty. I have given away piles of fabrics to friends. Have 5 more boxes to go and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Yesterday, I began reorganizing my quilt storage and pulled out these pieces from the archives. I thought it was great to see where I have been, and where I am now.
|My apron as personal armor. This is the first in the series. It was in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine in 2009, Mar/April issue. The belt includes all of the things in my life that I need for my personal armor. It was a very personal piece for me.|
|Close up and not a very good picture of Heavy Metal 2 from 2007. It is 20" high by 61.5" wide, and it totally unzips. It traveled in SAQA show "The Creative Force' in 2007. A modern day shadow box of the things we keep to remind us who we are.|
|Metal Fruge from 2010. This quilt has never been shown in an exhibit. I think maybe it needs to hang in my studio in-between the aprons, high up on a wall.|
