Take a Word--Tattered



The word tattered always makes me thing of old, well-loved toys, and quilts made
by great-grandmothers from scraps of worn out clothes, that kept us warm and cozy.

The bear, blocks and quilts were found on Google.  The sunflower is a free stock image
from deviantart, all altered with filters, blending tools and brushes.


Thanks for visiting...

  3. Beautiful entry, Linda. It reminds me of the quilts my mother and grandmother made from scraps. Those quilts were not the beautiful patterns you see now, but were what I guess are called crazy quilts. And my sister had a bear with only one ear. So I really relate to this piece.

  7. It's a cozy warm piece that made us think of grannies and mums that made our lives less tough... By the way, I love what you did with that photo (Orange).

  13. Fantastic memories are made of these. I had a "crazy quilt" made by great-grandmother, and my sister wanted to borrow it to have for a while. Now she won't give it back!
