My INSANE Mowana tree
This tree is called Insane for two reasons.
  • I am Insane for even having the thought of this Art Quilt
  • I was medically insane when I started this Quilt. I had been poisoned by a regular medication I was taking and the withdrawal effects of this poisoning was brain shivers, lack of co-ordination and general feeling of drunkenness 24/7 for 5 weeks. To tell myself I would be OK and keep my fingers nimble I decided to start this quilt I had thought about for months by then. It helped that I was bed ridden and in need of something to do that did not need scissors and sharp objects. The lack of co-ordination and brain shivers made sewing on buttons extremely difficult but I persevered and hundreds (if not thousands) of needle pricks later....................... ITS DONE :)
