This another old block that I decided to stitch onto. I added the ribbon roses and the copper/orange colored beads. The beads are special to me as I bought them at the flea market in Paris when I was there almost two years ago. Their color is perfect for this block. I can't think of much else to do on this block so I might call it finished. Which means there is only one block left to finish for this quilt. Yippee!
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
