An Angel Passed By

Just recording an idea for an abstract piece that came to me while working on the roots appliqué. 

I would use an appliqué fabric, which is curvy strips sewn one on top of the other with newsprint as a stabilizer. After removing the newsprint, I would attach the fabric to a base fabric, possibly patchworked. Then I would start cutting into the top fabric and stitching.

Turquoises and blues sound tempting.
Turned vertically, this idea looks like a pair of wings, but I think I'm leaving that idea behind, or a couple of combs?

The journal where I catch ideas is very boring. Just thumbnail sketches and scribbled ideas. So imagine my surprise when I turned the page...

An angel had passed by and left a message.
