Time Flies

Goodness I don't know where this week has gone.  I have been busy sorting my stash which is still overwhelming even though I have  not spent any money on supplies or fabrics this year.  

Each month I try to participate in a challenge on the Fibre Arts & Mixed Media Forum: this month the theme is "the Sun" because of the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere.

I decided to depict my interpretation of the heat of the Australian summer and the after effects of a bushfire.  A familiar subject in this state.  Any way I will put a couple of pics here to see what I did.  As usual I am not really satisfied with this piece but it will have to do.

Oh goody, it makes me feel warm on such a cold and wet day! I would love to see it in person; is there beads on it? I bet it is sparkly? Pop over for a cuppa so I can have a look?

This is great Dian. I love the bit of shine behind the 'tree', and love how you've achieved the effect. Great interpretation.
