July 29 2000
"As we drove down the road we passed a huge hanging glacier; then just the
other side of the pass...Worthington Glacier! We were able to walk right up
to it and could have actually climbed on it, if it were safe. There were
great gaping ice caves beneath it...you could see deep into the heart of the
glacier. The color inside was a deep lovely blue. The glacier was "ice
blue", excepting the leading edge, or 'face', which was black with rocks,
dirt and debris picked up on its slow, steady flow downhill."
The sky is hand dyed cotton, with deconstructed poly batting overlay for extra clouds. The mountain and glacier is several different sheers and two different colors of cellophane, one teal and the other aurora borealis, behind different sheers. The 'dirt and rocks' are lace overlay. The top edges of the ice is painted with a white shimmer fabric paint. I used a soft mauve tulle over all allow quilting.
It is finished with facing and measures 19 1/2"x 22"
I am happy to have my 'Muse' back, and Loved this challenge Lisa!
I would love your comments and critiques...
