IFFCG Challenge 2012 "Treelander: Awaken"

"High vibration, go on to the sun
Oh, let my heart dreaming
Past a mortal as me, where can I be?

Wish the sun to stand still
Reaching out to touch our own being
Past a mortal as we, here we can be."

-'Awaken' by Yes from the album 'Going for the One'

The latest addition to Treelander series, on exhibit with in the International Freeform Crochet Guild website. You can view the exhibit at:

Yes and Roger Dean were no question perfect for this challenge. The phenomenal talent the musicians and surreal art of their album covers have inspired me to create at a level of excellence making this piece a fun process.

I've never had the privilege of meeting the band or artist but if they ever see the exhibition, they'll find their inspiration in with other artists as Van Gogh, Picasso, Beethoven, Tchaikowsky, The Beatles, Cat Stevens, Klimt, Frank Lloyd Wright, George Gershwin, Monet and many others. 
Treelander: Awaken incorporates knit, crochet, embroidery, and Kumihimo braid. Embellished with birds, beads, a dragonfly and shells.
