Alphabet Book Part 1

We’ve been having a Letter Challenge going on at the SAQA site, so I’m creating an alphabet book with mine.

Lots of A shapes here in this seaside architectural marvel. I took this foggy evening photo while moored in front of it.

I made and batiked this shirt when I was about 19 years old. I still have it and it looks pretty good for such an old thing that I really wore quite a bit.

This set of chairs sat out in front of these barn doors in a place I used to live. They didn’t look quite like these do.

I dyed each one of these pieces of fabric and many more! Some are tie dyed, others snow dyed and some are batiked.

Many hours of labor have gone into the collection.
Speaking of many hours! Why is it that some of the smallest items take so much time to do?
This is part of a very old piece I did when I first began to make art quilts. I've since taken it apart and remade it.

Y'all know how much I love to garden and that I didn't get to do much this year because I've been getting my hands fixed, along with other old body parts. But I'm so happy that my clustered mountain mint, Pycnanthemum muticum has been so happy being  left quite alone - a very independent native plant!

More next time! Been on this computer too long today and it’s taking a toll on my hands. We’ll rest now!
