I had a lot of trouble getting something done for this challenge. First I thought of doing a portrait of my mother who passed 6 1/2 years ago. I began that project but did not like it at all, ended up taking it apart.
Then I decided to try making a quilt of an orchid since my parents grew a lot of them and they filled the house and green house when I was growing up. Both of those tries did not work - one was thrown out and the other still sits on my table not knowing what will become of it.
The next thing I tried was something with symbols from all my travels. Since I have a sewing machine that does embroidery, I put a few designs on cloth, then became disillusioned with that one, too. Just did not inspire me.
Went back to the first idea of my Mom. Got further along but then I just stopped. It is still sitting there on top of the orchid. Maybe I will finish it....someday.
So here is one that I made a few years ago. It was part of a challenge with a few friends. We each made a list of things about ourselves and shared the list. This is the soft book I made from what others, and myself, made.
I took a picture of my wedding, transferred it to cloth and sewed it onto the background along with an embroidered heart and rings and the date of my wedding.
If anyone wants to see more of the book, it is on my web page from March 2020: https://yogaromaquilter.blogspot.com/.
