Branching Out

It started with an abstract background; then I added a branch.  Then I added another and soon little leaves with faces adorned the branches, which resembled a tree.  The background was pieced. The fabric leaves were adhered with fabric glue, then hand-stiched with an irridescent embroidery floss.  I used cotton quilt batting and backed the postcard with decorative paper.  The binding was machine-stitched in the traditional manner, sewn directly onto the paper backing.

In honor of the newest member of our family, my first grand-child, I wrote:

Branching Out

A baby is born.

The density of foliage

increases

as love discovers

a new face.
