I wrote a grant for the first time and submitted it yesterday. I realize it is a longshot, but I am really hoping that entering this “contest” will help me on the road to a new….what???? I thought I would share a few of my art pieces with the world. The first one is a punch needle design from a picture I found on the Internet. I free drew the picture, but to be honest, I was inspired by another artists’ painting.
This is one of my favorites and I really enjoyed making it. I wish that it didn’t take me so long to make them because I would try to make more of them. This one is made entirely of DMC cotton floss. It took me ten months to complete. Although to be fair, I was working, raising three children and a husband, and trying to maintain.
This next one I made thinking I could use it as a part of a runner that would go on our stairs, but after I used glue to make the yarn stick, it shrunk and ended up not being the correct size. In addition, all of the yarn except the dark brown, I hand dyed using plants that I collected.
Anyway, this is my work thus far. I do have a few others that aren’t quite completed, but I am hoping to finish by the end of the month.
