MY WINDOW VIEW

I found a small drawing one day in an Israeli magazine for children, HaEzbaon - it told a sweet story about a little girl flying off with a balloon, and getting stuck on a tree, and being rescued by... oh well, just see for yourself! To be read from right to left of course!
One of the wonderful things having grandchildren is that you can spoil them and make stuff for them and they will always love it!! I created this wall hanging from that drawing, using a basic color scheme of red, blue, yellow and green,  for my then small twin granddaughters (who turned fifteen two days ago), now it went on to a wall in the room of their little sister Yasmin and it still is pretty and loved!
Cotton fabric, machine pieced, hand appliqued, which was quite a challenge, the pieces being so small, machine quilted in the seamlines, 103 cm x 115 cm

Right here is a perfect example of why you have permanently wound yourself around my heart, Yael. It's not just that your work is impressive on a technical and aesthetic level, it's WHERE you find your inspiration and HOW you execute it. You are a story teller at heart. I've never before this known fabric or crochet work to communicate, but you manage to do it every time.

I too, hope little GOlda is thriving, Yael :) This hanging is lovely; it is a striking piece and has a touch of whimsy and childhood about it. YOur granddaughters are SOOOOOO lucky! It is so perfectly formed and the colours are those a child would love. Another masterpiece!
