June TIFC - Day Five - Done!

I was looking through my stash to try and find something to add to this piece when I came across these seven round gold medallions. I have no memory of getting them - that could be said for quite a few things in the stash - so, I decided they were the perfect embellishment. I still need to write and 'stash' the stories in their zippered pouch but I'm calling this done for June's TIFC. The piece finishes at 14.5" x 22.5" and I'm calling it Marcella Memories.

Here are links to the previous four days of work on this piece:
Day One, Day Two, Day Three, Day Four.

Living consciously...

Hendricks offers an interesting idea about relationships: each partner must assume responsibility for 100 percent of what goes right and for 100 percent of what goes wrong.

I wanted to argue with this but my better self agrees. (Of course, the victim-child in me is having a tantrum that will soon resolve to a stubborn pout!) So, embracing the spirit of responsibility is a celebration of wholeness, for practice today I'm going to evaluate how much responsibility I take in the key areas of my marriage. I'm thinking that there will be a few new things on my 'to do' list.

This is great. I love the zippers and the medallions are just perfect.

The medallions are a wonderful addition -- neither jumping at you, nor disappearing. I now "see" the purple hearts in a way that I didn't in the past when they merged with the background too much.. :-0

I agree with quilt pixie, the hearts disappeared before, but now have a definite sense of place. I love the idea of the little pouches holding hidden information.

I absolutely love Marcella Memories! what a cool idea and the scrolls with stories are a great addtion. From your description, I could perfectly picture your grandmother sitting at the table with the crossword. I would have loved to meet such a cool lady!!
