Feels So Good and Red Dawn

Feels So Good is a small abstract piece mounted on an 8X10 canvas. It consists of cotton layered with dyed cheesecloth, Angelina Fibers and ribbon. It is machine appliqued and quilted and just seemed like a "fun, feel good" piece. Haven't been in the studio for a while and it DID feel so good to be back in the swing of things.
Red Dawn is part of the small landscape series and is composed of cotton, wool roving, dyed cheesecloth and Angelina fibers. It is needle felted, machine appliqued and quilted with metallics and heavier 30 wt thread from Caryl Bryer Fallert's "Brytes' line from Superior. I have had this thread for a while but really haven't had a chance to use it. Have to say it quilts beautifully and I love the look of the heavier thread. Red Dawn is also mounted on 8X10 canvas. Both are available at the Copper Shade Tree Gallery in Round Top, TX. Please visit for more information.
