Four Elements, Tammy
Well my first thought when this challenge theme was chosen was to do a volcano erupting into an ocean. Scratched that one.
I have been wanting to try weaving strips of fabric, so chose the red for fire, the blue for the water, blacks, and different browns for the earth, and finally the gray for air. I weaved the fabrics in and then used red thread to do free motion stitching.
This was a first for me, I had bought a new Janome 6600 in June and this was the first machine I had that could drop the feed dogs. It is not great free motion, but I liked doing it and am sure I will do more. My piece is 9 by 11.
