This little piece has worked as a sample for my fringe beading lessons. The needles are so thin and fringe is created by stringing the beads through the needle and then turning around and threading back through the same beads? I had no idea! I used pieces of small stones which made my fringe making all the more challenging. The mark making is becoming important to me with each cloth and I'm feeling more and more like I'm cataloging, or preparing these fragments for restoration ... metaphorically speaking!! The three odd squares came from a screen printing on loose netting and the all over combination of reds and yellows gives the cloth an 'on fire' appearance to me. I've already started my next cloth and this time my palette with change to grays and whites. It is a screen print on burlap and I'm hoping to heavily bead the surface ... beads, beads and more beads!
Today is our 7th wedding anniversary ... time is just flying by! We are exchanging cards and going out to dinner. We both are embarrassed to admit we completely forgot to celebrate last year. We didn't even remember until several weeks after the day. Maybe it is a good sign?
