Cotton Candy and Polka dots


This piece was unknown from the start, as I was playing with some gifted cotton. I am not a crocheter or a knitter so I decided to try to weave it into a wolf. It worked but then grew a strange life of its own as I had woven no body, but I kind of like the peculiar and uncomfortable nature of this.

It's getting darker . . . Blood Lines


These images evolve as I work, I start with a rough skeleton of fabrics and then flesh out the design as I go. This piece called Bloodlines started with circles of blood, I planned on crocheting them, but in the end wove circles and then added the drips, which evolved into red trees, and finally a path of blood in red sashiko.  I like the dark skinned Little Red, I just like the darkness of this piece in contrast to some of the lighter coloured and designed ones I have been working on.

Vânia Mignone


This definitely counts as a 'wolfish thing' post, but the violence of the red and the 'tail' of the tree crown in this painting by Vânia Mignone could only be a LRRH image to me, extremely bold and unsettling.
