Yoyos On My Mind

Sketches for large textile pieces. Top L-R: Kudzu, Invasion (of the Apple Snail). Bottom L-R: River of Blood, Sustenance, Moonlight, Vine.

Working on some new ideas for large textile pieces. 
I am thinking yoyos.
Not the toy-with-a-string yoyo; the fabric yoyo or "Suffolk Puff" - hundreds of them. 
I am presently sewing black ones for the black and red idea on the far left.

These ideas are definitely out of my comfort zone and very exciting. 
I have been consulting with my sister the Textile Queen. 
I've also bounce some ideas off of textile artist, Leslie Gruesbeck. 

I'll keep you posted on my progress.
