Friday Fragments Flowing Faithfully

I am currently following a wonderful Whispering Hearts with the wonderful Jude Hill and below are some of the works I am doing and influenced by the fabulous work that she does. I know that mine seem a lot different then hers but she is an inspiring and thought provoking woman. You can see the work of many of her students here.

Yes there is a cross in my heart. Thats about all that needs to be said. I think this one will evolve.
I have been looking in the mailbox every day this week hoping for a pkg. from a wonderful textile artist Arlee. I am pretty sure that I found her blog from Jude Hills blog Spirit Cloth. Arlee has taken some online courses with Jude. I was so excited to get the book because it was an eco dyeing book. So I opened the envelope and took out the book and then opened the front of the book and was shocked to see two beautiful pieces of fabric tucked just inside. I have to say I was very overwhelmed by finding these in the book and I just can't express to you how overwhelmed i was. I was gasping .. oooooooooo..... and to see the stitches and the work and the dyeing and I just kept saying .. ooooooo haha .. I wasn't expecting to have these and my reaction was even surprising to me. I just couldn't get over that she had stitched the cloth and put together these lovely fabrics to stitch on. It was an amazingly powerful feeling of gratitude and blissful blessing. I know I am gushing about this but honestly I was so impressed and delighted to have these cloths not to mention the  fabulous book. So please pop over to Arlee's blog and see the wonderful things she's doing there. No doubt she is already well known to most of the followers of Jude.
So ... tonight I am going to read the book and gaze at my new pieces of a loveliness as I go off to sleep tonight. Thanks Arlee... love everything!!
