Artist Comment/Statement:  If I had been asked what was the first thing I wanted to be able to do after my first back surgery, the answer would have been to be able to dance with abandon at noon. 

Techniques:  All of the fabrics in this piece were fused to the batting and then quilted with free-motion quilting and free-motion thread embroidery by machine.   The sun was made by crocheting with gold metallic thread.  The women were rubber-stamped and painted-by-hand using fabric paint.  Glass beads were hand stitched for the women's hair and elsewhere on the wall hanging.  The pink/orange raw silk in this piece helped to enhance the feeling of a "hot" noontime.

Materials:  Fabrics used were raw silk, cotton and cotton lame.  Batting used was a polyester batting.  Machine embroidery and quilting was done using rayon, metallic, and monofilament nylon/invisible threads.  Metallic gold thread was crocheted around a small brass ring from the hardware store.  Glass beads were also used for surface embellishment.  Fabric paint was also used.
