Dyeing Workshop



I guess I have done more 'art' this week than I thought.  The Grand Guild of Fibre Artists met on Tuesday to dye some fabric.  Top photo is two cotton fat quarters, silk ribbon and rayon seam binding.  Middle photo is all silk, some charmeuse, some dupioni.  The clean up paper towels in the last photo have me the most excited though.  I know, weird.  There is also sari silk and cotton threads in the last photo.  Now, I just need a project that uses these pretties!

I am still plugging away at the journal prompts

I am not super impressed with this page but I am impressed that I got it done.  Yay me!  This week has been exceptionally busy for me and not much art is getting made.  A lot of my energy has gone into writing a proposal for an artist in residence.  I am super excited about the proposal and I am hoping and praying that I get it!  All prayers and loving thoughts in this regard are gratefully accepted!

Work in Progress Wednesday

Here is my finished April Bead Journal.  I am rather pleased with the way this one turned out.  Plus I had a lot of fun stitching it!

Take a Stitch Tuesday

Here is my Coral stitch as per Sharon B's instructions.  This is a simple stitch and I like it a lot.  I didn't do anything very clever with it.  I used a variegated perle cotton.

More butterflies

I am having so much fun with my butterflies.  I have some beads and embroidery.  I have also added some heat set crystals to the backs of some of them.  It is possible that the backs will be seen so they need to look good too.

Journal page

Art enable us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time, Thomas Merton.  So true.  I enjoy adding quotes to my journal pages.  I am, however extremely frustrated trying to find a white pen/marker that works properly.
