Yesterday I finished "November" and I took
a detail picture by the light of my day-light lamp
You see I couldn't help myself :
I hád to give one of the trees a face.
It's a rather sad face ...
( although a tree thát old must know that shedding your leaves
isn't too bad, there will be lots of new leaves next year )
I made the leaves out of the tiniest snippets of fabric and painted tyvek.
This morning I took a picture of the whole quilt.
I based my design on an old Dutch nursery rhyme by Rie Cramer.
When I close my eyes I can see the picture that went with it in the book.
( november, november,
daarkomt een hele vlucht
van kleine gele bladertjes
gedwarreld door de lucht
de wind zwiept door de takken
ik loop de dorre blaadjes na
maar ik kan ze haast nooit pakken ! )
( lots of tiny yellow leaves are flying through the air,
the wind blows, I run after them, but I almost never can catch them )
With this one now finished I can start with "December"
there will be a lot of stars in it.
( of course "August" is still there ... waiting !
But there are always so many
little projects that come in between ...)
