The new piece I started began as a long strip,
a scrap from Connie cut to a quarter circle became the "earth"
for the fern ( that was already on the cloth )
But then I added another strip next to the first one
to make it a square and started basting all of it down.
Some batik fabric with kind of flowers also cut in a quarter circle
and some yellow silk completed the ful circle
I love circles
( It's a bit like Jude's sun / moon, divided into four parts, I realize now )
Then there was the idea of the four elements :
air, earth, water and fire.
In the batik flowers I discovered a stem I could turn into a fish, and another one ...
... and I had a gap to close !
Then all of a sudden the thought "water" came to me !
Water of the sea evaporates by the heat of the sun, forms clouds,
becomes rain and snow and returns to the earth,
where plants get it in order to grow,
and rivers take the water back to the sea again ...
the ful circle
now I had my plan !
And then I also knew for sure : with rain and the sun .....
there had to be a rainbow
( the outline of the "air" quarter is made by thread beads, including the rainbow )
Something else I found
the "megamendung" cloud Jude sent me !!!
( Hmmmm I'm very pleased with it so far )
