I had to just combine photos into one because that's how things are going right now - always I suppose. One thing leading to another all woven together. I am really enjoying Jude's Cloth to Cloth workshop - fabric strips all over the house. Getting used to a new schedule - littlest boy now in preschool for the first time ever. Keeping both boys busy in the time between everything else - have made two trips to this wonderful place and more to come. Playing in the creek. Beetles born of the symmetry on the moth. Things I am learning from Jude's class weaving their way into many things here and there - a new fabric checkerboard for my boys - in fall colors of course.

Camouflage Finds a Home

I found a home for my moth from the "camouflage" post - a gray/black white-striped cotton fabric. I think the stripes used vertically mimic the grooves of tree bark in a simple way - although I may add in some details with stitch. I laid out the other elements on a base fabric this morning - now to pin them down and start the "glue" stitches. Jude's techniques from the Spirit Cloth Workshop have set me free in getting things started each time. I am enjoying it all so much - thanks, Jude.

Now if I can just finish some of them - the new beginnings are always so much fun.
