September Quiltie

This is the quiltie (6 x 6") I've made for Marja from the FibreFever group. Her theme is birds. Some time ago I saw a photo of a print of the bird on this interesting blog. The blog owner kindly gave me "permission" to make the bird in fabrics. Thank you!! The fabrics are silk, and I've used metallic paints and free hand embroidery. I hope Marja will like it.

Mosaics

Last week I was in Cyprus for the first time. Lots of things to do and see. These photos are mosaic floors nearly 2000 years old. I could have spent days looking at all the details! I found lot of quilt blocks on this floor.......... The next photo shows Narcissus, the young man who fall in love with his own reflection in a pool of water. The story of Narcissus and Echo is a very sad one, so sad that the gods had pity on him and turned him into a flower that grows near water so that he can always look at his reflection.
