Fruit of the Spirit: Refreshing the Roots and Bearing Fruit

Fruit of the Spirit in Polyester
Fruit of the Spirit Mobile by Margaret Almon(Age 12)

When I wrote earlier about my Fruit of the Spirit Mobile that I painstakingly stitched from polyester double knit, my mother emailed this photo to me, as she has it hanging in her dining room.  I had forgotten how pleased I was with the pineapple of Goodness, and the plaid on a diagonal for texture!  Self-Control is emblazoned a banana, my least favorite fruit, but I still enjoyed the curve.  I may have had a jumper made of the pale peach of Self-Control, and the vibrant orange of Kindness is where my eye goes to now.  Seeing it all in the flesh(fruit-flesh that is), brings back the tactile sense of making the stitches, lining up the fabric.  This part of the root system that led to my life now as an artist, and my new manifestation of the Fruit of the Spirit via the commission from Suzanne Halstead.  On Wednesday, Suzanne and I grouted Faithfulness and Kindness.  The scale is much larger than my mobile, as is my excitement in seeing it all bear fruit!  More photos to come as the process continues.
