As I has posted earlier when learning what the first challenge was to be, I pretty much hit the panic button.
There are very few photographs of myself. I decided that I wanted to think a bit out of the box on this one. Who am I? What would my self portrait say about me...So here it is. Me. The art quilter me. Stitching by hand a feather of the wonderous crow. Flower petals of the deep colbalt- purple blue that I adore. Leaves from the forest where I often sit and stitch. . A butterfly, close at hand, reminding me that Nature can be beautiful, fragile and amazingly resilient all at the same times.
And here is the photograph that became the self portrait.
