This long weekend (today is a civic holiday) has been about feathers.
My longtime friend sent me another feather from her backyard in Australia and it set me off. I painted two feathers on a postcard for her, and started stitching another on a piece of antique linen.

This next piece was inspired by a huge pieced fabric by Julia Griffiths Jones depicting aspects of a collection at the National Wood Museum of Wales.

 My three days in Wales this summer yielded so many intangible treasures. One tangible treasure is the striped blue and cream Welsh wool scraps in this quilt, courtesy of my friend who generously let me have some.

Simplicity is the removal of the useless and the unnecessary--source unknown

  3. The quiltie looks like stamps on an envelope.
