Sewing Art

In complete contrast to yesterday's work, here is a piece I made for the "Take A Word Challenge:" sewing.  I decided to check The Graphics Fairy for a sewing image and came across these four dress forms in different colors.  I immediately thought of an Andy Warhol-esque collage.

Sometimes less really is more.

And for those of you who couldn't sleep last night, here are the people and songs featured on yesterday's collage: from the upper left, then around clockwise: The Mamas and Papas, Grace Slick  of Jefferson Airplane, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Doors.

The lyrics: "Night divides the day" is from "Break On Through" by The Doors.  "McGuinn and McGuire couldn't get no higher" is from "Creeque Alley" by The Mamas and Papas.  "I want it painted black" is from "Paint It Black" by The Rolling Stones.  "Been dazed and confused for so long" is from "Dazed and Confused" by Led Zeppelin.  "The ego sings of castles and kings" is from "The Porpoise Song" by The Monkees.  "Remember what the dormouse said" is from "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane.

Here's to the start of a long weekend!
