Well, archaeological may be a bit of a stretch, but I had totally forgotten that I had this artwork, since it got packed up in 2007 and stayed packed in our garage when we moved to Tennessee. Who knew? So now that I am moving boxes from the new garage to...somewhere in the new house, I am finding 'lost artwork' from days gone by.
The first one is an 8x10" fused quilt, hand embroidered and hand quilted, mounted on plexiglass. I know the questions are...How? Well the plexiglass has been drilled with a tiny drill bit and I used fishing line to insert in the holes to hang it and to stitch the piece to the plexiglass. The tiny stitches are just through the back of the quilt, and don't show at all on the front.
Then this mixed media piece, which had no date or name is made with acrylic paint, and ink pens and stamping on illustration board and is in immaculate condition. Glad I did my packing carefully back then. 20x15".
I am so glad to have rediscovered this piece, which was no doubt one of my last machine/hand embroidered fused and quilted works. 9x12 mounted on plexi, which measures 13x15". Love this piece, and I am sure I can find a spot for it in the house of many more empty walls.
I'll be unearthing more of these in the coming days, I am sure.
