seeds of all seasons
waiting for life to begin
rest in still places
I used a piece of copyright-free artwork, manipulated it, printed on a batik fabric, stamped, did some free-motion stitching, twisted 2 different fibers for the edging, added beadwork and quilting. I think I will mount this on a textured black substrate.
This idea was inspired by my daughter and her husband who have spent 4 years in fertility treatments, battled with each carrying a recessive gene which does not allow a baby to reach full-term, but now are pregnant with a normal, healthy baby! Praise God!
