The sound of the sewing maching, the feel of fabric, and the texture and transparancy of pattern papper. It's part of me. Imprinted upon me as a baby, I'm sure. Listening to my mother's sewing machine,(and my grandmother's), all while being wrapped up in a quilt sitting in a rocking chair. Simultaneously rocking, watching, and listening. Comfort.
The baby girl ornament I created was for a four month old named Olivia.
2012 was year she was born and experienced her first Christmas. Again, I used mixed media; ephemera from an old Dick and Jane book, an O positioned in a charm for Olivia, rhinestones, glitter, pretty papers, and more charms all for princess Olivia.
