Ok, I'm goin' for a new challenge.
Faces... 28 in 29 days to be exact.
The piece above is called "Take Your Own Damn Picture"
It was created from a photo I took of myself. You have to know that I hate having my picture taken. I always hide my face, or make a face. It's just never been in my comfort zone.
On a driving trip out of state, I was bored. We were in the car, going thru boring flat land, nothing to look at, nothing to keep myself amused. We were all talked out and we don't agree on music. So what to do with 278 miles left to go....
My husband had his brand new little point and shoot camera along for the ride. With his permission (I think just to keep me out of his hair), I started shooting pictures out the window as we traveled down the boring ugly highway. Well, I soon got bored doing that so I turned the camera on him.
At first he was amused. That wore off quickly. Amusement turned to agitation. Then anger. Thru very clenched teeth he said, "why don't you take your own damn picture". So I did. I started snapping away.
When we got home from the trip, I needed a project. So I grabbed one of the photos and created this little (roughly 12x12") threadwork quilt.
