Description: This piece continues the series of House vs Home begun in response to periods of time we are forced to be in both.
Memories of summer vacation as a child. Spending the entire day outside playing, only going home to eat to the sound of your mother calling. Neighbourhood friends gather to play baseball, soccer, kick the can, and tag. This piece is made with strips of fabric and blocks of colour but it evokes so much more.
A plaid shirt handed down from brother to brother and finally the youngest cousin was the beginning of this improvisationally pieced medallion.The faded yellow background is the softest sheeting repurposed from my nephew’s bed. The sunshine of carefree summer days!
Hanging: A hanging sleeve is stitched on the back. It is easy to hang with a 48” rod and 2 small nails that you will need to provide.
Avoid placing in direct sunlight.
A lint roller will keep it dust free.
Occasionally, to keep dust from accumulating, carefully vacuum on low setting. Place a stocking or sheer netting over the cleaner hose to keep any pieces from pulling loose.
Air outside on an overcast day in the shade on a flat, clean surface. Or, air fluff in the dryer with no heat to refresh.
