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.
friend who generously let me have some.
