A while ago an idea began to stew,
for a friend, who had given me one of her beautiful stained glass owls...
Whilst having fun with my cotton stash and with spirals on my mind the idea began to take shape and crystallise!
This was the prototype, one strand of variegated cotton and a cream cotton with variegated sewing thread....sweet!
After poking, pulling and prodding,
musing and meditating,
cogitating and consulting,
Mr RW commented on the stitches...
and I thought about spaces!
Second holey spiral!
...and the backside view with some stitching to form the skull shape - a little asymmetric but I'm sure that's not unusual!
The final piece with crochet flowers, and a needle felted middle (nose!)
My friend was thrilled with a freeform flavour of an iconic image...
and is hoping to frame it in a box frame!
Its great to see things from another artists view...reminded me to search out some frames....
Its a tiny spoonful of a stash bust at 8g!
