Shrine Composition #1

...because I really suck at making up titles, and last year when I thought I was going to do a whole series of quilts around the idea of shrines this seemed like a great way to avoid the title problem forever and ever, that's why. Unfortunately for this plan, after Shrine Composition #2 (now being hand quilted I veered off in a totally different direction. Anyway, here's a not-very-good picture of #1; when the design board's clear again I'll put up the photo lights and take a better picture.

Here's a look at the central section of woven tubes:

And here are a couple of those dangly strings of beads I was whingeing about making:

and here's a really detailed closeup of three beads so that you can appreciate their full, craggy, glitzy, comples, multilayered glory.

Looking at the pictures reminds me that I really do love these beads.

I just don't want to make any more of them for a while.

  1. The beads do add so much to the piece as they are so different. And the woven tubes are so unique!
