My commissioned work project is completed, sent and received. I can now blog about it and include the feedback from Debra Sposa. Here is what she said:
OMG, what a beautiful piece of art this is. Stunning in so many ways. Wow! Just love it. Your stitching is perfection, the design so alive but in a very tranquil way. Just thrilled with the piece.
Thank you so much for taking on my challenge.
Your biggest fan,
Deb told me she really likes my work and would I create her something. I agreed without a deadline. I have been thinking about it for a while now. When I started one I couldn't stop, so I ended up making 4 little blocks together and combining them on a piece of vintage Japanese hem. I'm happy that Deb is happy with it too.
I met Deb through my blog many years ago. Deb is high school art teacher. She told me she often inspires her students with what I do and posted on my blog. I'm so thrilled to hear that my humble creations have a positive influence on younger generations. Deb regularly posts her students' work on her blog as well.
|Four little blocks together|
I called my commissioned work Sun and Earth. The name came to me when I worked on the final block, block #4. It's actually gave itself a name when I accidentally stitched the Sun on it.
I had a lot of fun creating these little blocks. I sometimes had stitching block. I'd walk away for a bit. When I took it up again I moved forward with stitching. It would tell me when it is done as well. Does that happen to you too?
Thanks Deb, for challenging me to create it for you. I have made a few little blocks for exhibition, and in future I might have to make more, but this is the biggest project I've ever made.
Until next time
