Thoughts of Fall
The autumn equinox occurred on Sept 22.
Here in Houston, I am looking for signs of the fall season in my yard and neighborhood. I am so ready for the heat and humidity to be gone.
I started this piece, "Thoughts of Fall" by weaving two fabric swatches together. I bought them from a local artist, Liz Axford, who had a fabulous studio sale last weekend. I asked her to write down the technique she used to dye her cloth.
Once I wove strips of shibori fabric together, I added accents as if I was coaxing the fall season along.
It may or may not go in my Etsy shop. I've gotten kinda attached to it.
