jansexton part deux


But that's not really why I'm double posting today. Since having this wretched cold and trying to rest and lay low, I've been able to complete a few projects that had been partially finished. One is this piece, "Winter Sunset":

I made this for Virginia Spiegel's Collage Mania II, a Fiberart For A Cause fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Each row has a bit of different fiber (watercolor paper, Lutradur, paper toweling, tulle, wood) that I have painted, dyed, stamped, burned, etc. They are all attached to the hand-dyed cotton with hand-dyed perle coton. I had a great time making it, and hope that I have time to do a few more pieces for this worthy cause. The picture isn't the greatest: I tried scanning the piece in, but will probably go back to using my camera after this little adventure.

Here are a couple of pictures of the snow, looking out towards our lake:

Snow! That’s more than we have had here in ”The cold Nordic Sweden”! It’s + 5.4°C (41.7°F) here right now, very misty and dark.
I saw the sun for about half a day last week and before that I can’t remember when it showed up.

Did you know that your caption, sexton is sixteen in Swedish? Also femton = fifteen and fjorton = fourteen.

This is a link to a site were you can translate from Swedish to English and vice versa. It's a Swedish site but I think you can handle it anyhow ;-)

Judy, I do like your collage. I've been admiring something similar in my oncologist's waiting room and thinking I'd love to make something like that, and here you are making it for a cancer group. And I love the pictures of snow. It is so hot here and humid as well, which really takes any pleasure out of the heat.

Your collage is very nice. We are well past cheering for snow around here. The temps are waaaay below zero and we'll be happy to leave for Australia.

A very nice collage. I need to add that tom y to do list. Can I just tell you that your new blog naming is driving me nuts. I have live bookmarks of fave blogs which list the latest posts. I can't tell if I have read one or not because I don't have a clue what you are going to post about. Waaaa!

I was wondering if you were going to participate. When I saw your name on Virginia's blog, of course I came over to see your collage. It is great...the name, colors, materials-very nicely done.

And if you want snow another time, just let me know.
