Finished Objects #5 & #6

Today I finished up two little projects. The fiber art group I belong to is wrapping up a round robin this month. We exchanged pages for a fiber book. Although I confess that I plan to turn mine into a little quilt because I want to admire it all the time.

Today I did Cynthia's ( on the left ) and Mary's page (on the right).

Cynthia's book is based on a poem about candy. I had a bit of trouble coming up for something for it but the page I ended up creating reflects the verse that I got so I hope she likes it.

Mary's book is about travel. Mary and I went to the International Quilt Festival in Chicago this past april and we went ahead a couple of days early so we could actually see the city. We took the subway all the way downtown (and ended up walking into the most wicked sideways rain wind storm we've ever had the displeasure of being in) and we were goofing around taking pictures during the ride. I snapped this Where I Stand picture of both of our feet so I decided that would be a good match for her book.

And here is the page I did for Leann's book:

I finished this one quite a bit ago but can't remember if I posted it or not so I decided to do it now since it fits in with the theme. Leann's book is about symbols and for some reason I'm really into arrows lately so that's what I did.

I'm finding that I'm doing a lot more writing and graphic type drawing on my work and I like the looks of it. I'll have to keep experimenting and see where it takes me.

Next up on the project schedule is sock creatures. I have two that just need eyeballs, one that needs stuffing and eyeballs and a fourth that needs to have his body stitched up and then he gets his stuffing and eyeballs. I want to hand in more then four (our group is doing an exhibit at expo of these little devils) so I need to whip up a couple more.

Stay tuned, hopefully there will be some monsters soon.....

Your pages turned out really nicely. I like what you're doing with the graphics and writing...but I confess to having a soft spot for stuffed things, so I can't wait to see pix of your "little devils"!!

I've never seen a fiber book before and didn't understand what you meant until the pictures loaded. Way cool! Like scrapbook pages, only all in fiber, right? I think those would make a fantastic quilt, too. If you do that with yours, I'd love to see the result.
