Middle of the week

I finished this small piece (9" x 12") and might send it to Ami for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. June's auction is up and running on her site so take a look and bid on a quilt! I added some beading on a few leaves and of course on the edge. This was a piece of fabric I had stamped from one of my hand cut stamps (which was half the size of this piece - you can see the lines in the middle).
I showed my blue and white peyote ring I made the other day and yesterday I made two more! So quick to do up and I really like them. The middle one was #15 beads but not Delica's. It's not quite as uniform as the other two but still turned out good.
I'm also working on stitching this shibori piece which is about 20" x 24". I found a really interesting pen/ink drawing by Paul Klee that he did on paper so I enlarged it and traced on my fabric. I'm now stitching the lines and I'll dye it along with some other pieces at our dye camp the middle of this month.
Each year our fiber group (CCC) holds a two day dye camp. It's quite nice for those who don't dye fabrics or don't have an area at home to dye large quatities. I didn't go last year and this year I'll only be there part of the day on Sat. Amber's concert/play is @3 p.m. that Sat. so I'll take off early to go watch her. I'm not dyeing any quantity of fabric mainly because I'm trying to use up all the fabric(s) I have dyed in the past!
Today is heading to pick kids up from school this afternoon and spending grandma time with them! Weather is overcast and rain is expected later this afternoon. I should get some shibori stitching done before I go. I need to put my fish on the back burner until I get these pieces stitched.

Paul Klee has inspired many painters, including myself. As suche he deserves a great thank you.
