Title of panel: “All Tied UP”
Dream Theme: Peace
Materials and Techniques:Knotted left over yarn ends and knitted to form a square. I finished with crocheted edges, ribbon and crystals. 
What is the story behind your panel?
“I have knotted together and knitted bits of leftover yarns from other projects. The black rows between the many hued ribbons and yarns serve to provide a certain harmony.
Just as the odds and ends have joined to form a cohesive new artwork, so too, “my dream” is for the coming together of warring nations (the sewn crystals) to find common ground upon to which build a safer, more peaceful and loving world.
These tied up loose ends serve as a metaphor to that end.”
