January "Take It Further Challenge " Complete

Here's my January Take It Further Challenge project with the ink jet transfer images, lace, and a little machine embroidery added. I believe it's complete (at least, for now). A real artist would explain the significance of the various fabrics in terms of Emma Bell Miles, her life, and art, and I'm sure I could produce such a statement. My years of writing grant proposals taught me something, after all. However, what I'd rather tell you is how I did the best I could with what I had on hand, and how I'll enjoy looking at Ms. Miles, her book cover, and her painting of the Fox Sparrow when the quilt-curtain is finished and hanging in my house.

Here's a list of all the posts I wrote about this particular project and the things I had to learn to complete it. Goodness, I was chatty!

Your block is very nice, and I am intrigued with your blog, as well. I like your subject matter, also, I love to read about women at the turn of the century. Especially those who have to overcome such odds to live a creative life.

And we think that WE have it hard...
