Clinging to the Edge

My latest, although not so recent, is Clinging to the Edge, shortly to go to Newfoundland and the Craft Council meeting there in the fall. It's already shown in three shows in Ontario. see for more pics. But this is my piece:

Clinging to the edge

“Clinging to the Edge” started as a photo taken on Alouette Lake, a natural lake dammed into a reservoir many years ago. Most of the trees in the reservoir footprint were cut at the time of the dam construction in 1928, hand sawn with cross cut saws. This one survived the cutting, but erosion from high water wave action leaves it precariously clinging to the edge. This quilt bears witness to its struggle.
