Posting early this week, as we are heading up to Lake Tahoe tomorrow with my mother, to see the snow. We don’t play in it any more (kids are up there snowboarding and snow-shoeing now), but we like to see it once in awhile. There was a big storm late last week, and the mountains and lake should be at their peak of perfect beauty.
Time to Unwind is another exercise in “faux tucking’, this time using a 2mm twin needle in a freehand spiral design. It is very subtle, and was not easy to photograph, but I could see using this technique to create a larger piece, or combination of pieces.
This is my 12th piece, which means I will get my own “artist page” on the Made On Monday site. Be sure to check it out!
