This piece is a step away from the 'gate imagery' of this series and instead a bridge was used as my metaphor. The green cloth was stamped with my own cut stamp as well as the dark sky star section was stamped with my hand cut stamp. The beads were just plain fun to sew!
A point of wisdom from a friend was that as we age we become more like who we really are ...In my life I've felt I've been on a journey, good, bad and even wonderful only to return as in full circle. I feel so much has dropped away and I'm more in touch with my truer self and it feels good ... like a homecoming. So the title "Circle of Return" seems perfect.
