The ruminations of an artist on art & life...art quilts, beading, knitting, drawing, painting, printmaking, bookmaking are all my passions, I love to explore creating....

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

Lest my readers begin to think this is a knitting only blog, here are some photos of my latest small quilt---I call this one: "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie" This small quilt is all quilted (and embroidered, or "thread painted") by hand. And no, I don't have a dog in my life right now---but I dream of having one....

How cool, and what lovely work! It's so nice to someone else doing stuff by hand (only because my machine skills need practice!); but I really like your Sleeping Dogs!

Aurora,

I like the colors and texture your embroidery brings out in this piece. However, the bottom section seems unfinished since there are no dogs there. Is there a reason for no embellishment there like the top section?
