This is my September piece. My husband and I went to Yellowstone and I was just in awe of its beauty...I found this piece of hand dyed silk in my stash and it reminded me of yellowstone. So off I went with my theme. Im really happy with it. I found myself feeling excited to work on it each day. .
Below is my October piece. We took my motherin law on a long drive of the leaves 2 weeks ago and it was so beautiful. The reds were spectacular. Ferne was just so thrilled to see the beauty on a sunny day. The sun filtered through them. I have found that hearing her reactions to things I take for granted helps me appreciate them. I learn a lot from her. She is 91 and fairly housebound so she loves getting out with us to see even the every day of the world. This is why I decided to work with only autumn colors. There isnt really a shape to it but it did turn out to resemble a cottonwood leaf. Funny how that works.
