Our Lady of Bling

One exciting thing to do with fiber art is to take something traditional, such as an image, or a fabric, or a design, and change it so that what was ordinary becomes different and new.  I used to only use cotton fabrics in my art work, in my prior comfort zone. Only recently, a good friend encouraged me to explore my growing passion for shiny, sparkly fabric. This piece was created joyfully with a collection of exuberant colors, lively prints and a wide variety of fabrics. It is machine and hand-pieced and abundantly embellished.
