I was amazed!

When I arrived at the Fitton Center Season Launch I was amazed to find that my piece “Resplendence #3, Liberty Determined had received the Handweavers Guild of America, Inc. (HGA) Award in recognition of a work demonstrating outstanding creativity and craftsmanship in the fiber arts.  Overwhelming!

Resplendence #4 – Progress

May 15, 2017

Working steadily on another in my resplendence series.  The photos below show my workspace and the front and back of the piece.

In punch needle the work is done from the back often turning the front into quite a surprise.

There is some dimensional punching in this piece.  Dimensional punching can only be discerned from the front.
