Yesterday my choir sang for a wedding....I love doing this! Of course I am very sentimental, I can get teary eyed singing at a wedding of someone I don't even know! But this wedding was just lovely. I think because of Advent, and all the Christmas greenery and the candles glowing in the evening...it was just ultra beautiful.
We have the most interesting tile floors in the chancel, and I finally remembered to bring my camera to take pictures. I have stared at these floors hundreds of times, trying to figure them out.
The Cathedral was built in the 1820's..and was spared from destruction when Sherman burned Columbia. An amazing feat in itself. I love looking at these tiles and thinking of the craftsmen that laid them.
Not all the fleur D'lis are the same! I need to go back with the camera again and get pics of the ones with variations so you can see them. I also love how the corners of the border around the fleur d'lis don't all turn the same either. They end where they end, and then they just GO! Here we spend so much time trying to figure things out just PERFECT...when it's more interesting to me if it isn't!
So..I took some time to play this morning with EQ and see if I could draft some things up from my pictures!
The fleur d'lis part is a bit odd because it is based on a shifted grid...I had to draw the grid myself..what a pain!I saved that puppy tho..I think it would be fun to play with!
And yes, I did every square a different fabric,and I would piece it as individual squares instead of rectangles, even where the color is the same because I think it adds to that mosaic feel. The colors appeal to me too..deep reds and gray on cream.
Who knows if I'll do anything with this. I am just intrigued by it! I'll miss it when I move!
