Fast Friday Fabric Challenge

Girl on a Swing


Size: 28" x 18 ½"

Art of the Month for December 2010 for the Framingham Artists Guild

A Third Prize Winner at Premier Image Gallery!

And another Third Prize at the Framingham Artists Guild Spring 2013 Library Show

The Fast Friday Fabric Challenge for this piece is one that I hosted, with the theme "Out on a Limb". It called for use of new techniques, with a tree theme. I adapted a drawing technique I had learned as a child, drawing lines from the root to the tips of twigs, only using lines of sewing instead of a pencil, and the tree limb became the support for a child's swing.

The girl is actually a 3-dimensional doll made with a wire mesh framework, on a swing made from craft sticks with chains attached to the tree branch. The leaves are organza in three shades, held on with beads. The fringe used (and used up!) seven hanks of embroidery thread.
