Wintergreens



Wintergreens

Hand Dyed cottons, fused, hand and machine quilted

9.75"x 13.5" Sold

Teeny Pine Trees


French Knot Stars

It's starting to get really cold around here. The water in the birdbaths is frozen and I sent Dave out alone to feed the chickens and ducks. Brrr.

I stayed inside and channeled three of the Seven Dwarves. Dopey, Sneezy and Grumpy. And if there is a fourth named Chubby, I am also channeling him. Anyway I guess I needed to get into the studio and remedy my Grumpitude. But when one is feeling dwarfish, it's hard to be creative. Why is there no Artie Dwarf?

I did manage to rise to the occasion and produce this ode to the changing season. Several of the homes on our road have large stands of Christmas-y pines, and we live in the midst of lumber-producing pine forests. And now that the leaves are down from the forest I can see that we have our own pines.

Now that I have made a quilt, I am no longer Grumpy, or Dopey. Still Chubby.

  1. Oh man, that is great! Seasonal, but not too much! Love the french knots with the variegated thread. I'm also amazed at how well the little miniature scene works amongs the larger more abstract stuff... I'm thinking it's because of the layout!

    Melody, this is a beautiful piece of art. You said you were happy, and with that, I am also feeling better after seeing it.

  4. Wow! If only I could whip up a quilt in such a short time. I guess I just over think my projects where as I should just jump in and do it!

  8. I hereby authorize the naming of dwarves to suit any purpose. We'll just assume they lived in another part of the forest. Artie, welcome to the family.

    Love the quilt. Love, love.

    I tried fabric dyeing a few years ago, and after a while put all the supplies back in the closet. After seeing your latest, I'm thinking I'll get them back out after Christmas. It is so pretty. I especially love the bottom left panel with the small trees. It has so much depth. You do great work. Thanks for inspiring everyone.

  15. OH MY GOD, you are a *hoot*. Chubby would be my dwarf, too. I once accidentally listed "Gropey" as one of the seven, too.

    Beautiful work, as always. You must go to bed every night satisfied that you've made the world a more beautiful and vibrant place.
