This past week I met up with some friends for lunch and show and tell! What a fun afternoon we had.
Kay showed one of her great quilts she finished. I'm sure you've seen her work before but if not, head over to her blog...grab a cup of coffee/tea/whatever and feast your eyes!
This is a piece Beth is hand stitching! She originally had a rust piece which she added some stenciling and painted washers onto. I think this is a really cool piece and cant wait to see if finished!
Dang! I didn't realize I didn't get full shots of Nancy's fabrics she's been dyeing! Some great pastel shades and beautiful organza dyed pieces. Use your imagination!
Nancy did finish this kit piece which is outstanding! Love the design placement and patterns. She needs to replicate the patterns next time she's painting fabric!
I showed some of my shibori pieces and talked about my next project! Which is beading a squirrel! Yep...and guess what color he's going to be! BLUE! In our traveling exhibit in Michigan, one of our artists is George Rodrigue who created the Blue Dog. Well, I know most in our group will be doing a 'blue dog' so I thought I'd mix it up and bead a blue squirrel! Why not...right! Here's my pattern that I'm going to bead......
here! I'm putting to good use some of those beads!!!
