Just a little bit more stitching (and playing) done on my CHANCE project.
Random choices made by the throw of the dice.
You may have seen the purple stitched circle before, as that was a previous CHANCE stitching. This weeks throws of the dice asked for "circle", "applique", "zig-zag", "ribbon embellishment", and "the number 3" amongst other things.
This is what has randomly happened so far:
This is not finished yet. Lots more random 'stuff' to happen yet.
If you missed how this project started I have recaped a little bit on my blog
(to remind myself too).
And finally I am able to reveal my "other" project that has taken up a lot of my time and creativity.
The International FreeForm Fiberart Guild
2013 Challenge Exhibition has
I have created the exhibition book for this year's challenge.
Fun or what!!!
This year our challenge was to create a FreeForm Fiberart work on the theme of
46 participants from the Yahoo group IFFFG took part and their fiberart work is included in the book and the online gallery.
Once again, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with this very talented group of fiber artists.
Here is the link to the book MOTHER EARTH. All pages can be viewed in the preview.
ALL profits from the sale of the book go the charity (or charities) voted by the members of the Guild.
Here is my fiberart piece for the challenge.
And my description for this piece in the exhibition is as follows:
Beltane - a Gaelic May Day Festival, celebrates Mother Earth in full bloom.
It is a time when Mother Earth is fertile and abundant, half way between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice.
My free form piece applauds the flowers that Mother Earth brings forth. The fiery reds and oranges that I have used are symbolic of the fires that were lit in the rituals of the Celtic festival. The fires were deemed to have protective powers and were used to protect the cattle and crops, and also to encourage new growth from Mother Earth.
Techniques used: Free form crochet, hyperbolic crochet, stitching, plaiting, needle-felting, and fused felting.
Hope everyone is having a great week.
