Once In a Blue Moon

Hand Stitched scroll by April Sproule

My son and his beautiful wife were married a few months ago during the height of the pandemic. None of us were able to attend due to travel restrictions. They managed to have a really lovely and truly memorable day in spite of all that was going on in the world.

I could not be happier for the two of them. I wanted to make something special for them to celebrate their marriage and also the purchase of their first home. 

 I started with 3 photos from their engagement and wedding and started pulling hand dyed and rusted fabrics I had created in earth tones. I printed the photos on Jacquard's Inkjet Printing Cotton using my little Epson ET-3750 printer.

I took my time making this piece, and I enjoyed every moment of it. I tried to include elements of nature as well as some text to depict their love of books and of all types.
