six weeks of creating week 5

September 09, 2010

Design is the application of intent – the opposite of happenstance, and an antidote to accident.
— Robert L. Peters


week 5 of creating…..this week fabric and fiber arts…..I personally love fabric; the hand of it (how it feels when you touch it) and the patterns that can be created and the colorations that come out dying a piece. So this week I chose my inspiration from Marisa and tried my hand at creating a piece of art with an embroidery hoop. Hope you enjoy the piece.

In case you’ve been wondering about all the wine pictures. During this course my family and I took a little weekend trip to Napa, so I thought I would share some of those photos with you as well. Hope you all have a great Thursday and I’ll see you back here with Week 6-Wild Card…..
