Hazel Irene Milner

Granny square afgan and double wedding ring quilt (created from my mom’s dresses, flour sack material, all scraps: pieced by machine and quilted by hand) by Hazel Irene Milner in Longmont Colorado circa 1950. She was a busy and creative woman: vegetable gardner, farmer, seamstress, cook, quilter, and did needlepoint and crochet. Miss you grannie.

Egg plant : that was a pun — egg and polymer clay here, with plants

This egg was kind of fun to make but it started out as a piece that because of other demands sat for several weeks half done (just the two halves of the egg and a couple of grey round blobs). But in some free time I added flowers and leaves and stems. All these flowers are made with left over clay with flower petals from my Memory-bead business.
It actually goes against my principles of a pristine earth to make things out of plastic (which polymer clay and resin both are), so i am ultra conservative with every scrap.  The egg actually was divided, but i added the strands on the inside and pressed it shut with little round pink dots (haha).
