I painted my paper box black and then added flowers that “echo” the fabric to the sides.
They are not exact replicas of the flowers, just my free form version. I also added glitter around a few edges.
The box on the
right that says, “shine eternally-William Blake” are matches. I thought the words were
appropriate. The table cloth was made from Laura Ashley fabric that I gave my mother in the 1980’s.
(She made it.)
A side flower I painted…
Another view, another flower. My youngest daughter colored and glittered a beautiful
fall leaf. My mother loved the fall, so we decided to add her picture. She also loved pumpkins and Halloween.
Not the scary part of Halloween, just the sweet things! Like cute costumes and pumpkins.
the complete El Dia de los Muertos!
My mother loved snowmen and my girls and I were out shopping over a week ago and
we came across this one. The minute I saw it…I told my girls my mother would love this.
So I bought it with the intention that It would be a part of my remembering ceremony.
I will wear an apron tonight in the kitchen, while making dinner, in
honor of my quilting grandmother. She always wore one in the kitchen.
Next year, Maybe I will do a quilt or a quilt piece for El dia de los muertos.

mentioned that a quilt could be a shrine….I like that idea a lot!
I have the basic layout of my new icon/gravitar. Only one row of stitching done on this.
At least I was able to pull the fabrics together….still thinking about the yellow…hmmm.
