Seeds beneath the earth
Awaiting the warmth of spring
Soon will sprout and grow
As I thought about the word "beginnings," I thought of new growth in the spring.
The word "start" didn't come to me until I'd nearly finished the piece and decided it needed something on the left side, so I added a few alphabet beads:
My primary goal for the fiber pieces that go with the haiku for this group is to try new things. I also don't want to obsess about finding the "perfect" bit of material - so the earth is a piece of upholstery material (which DID work out perfectly!), the sky is a scrap of flannel, and the pieces of the plant are assorted odd leftover pieces.
I'd never done anything remotely resembling threadpainting, but it worked really well for the root hairs. I'm not so happy about the leaves; I like the 3-D aspect, but the rough edges still bother me some.
