Red, Black & White Fiber Art Bird Collage

I really like red, black and white together.
This Red, Black & White Fiber Art Bird Collage began on 
A screen fiber "twig" has been hand embroidered in place.
This collage is completed with a red ribbon 
and a black & white batik fabric.
Mounted on a black wooden 9 X 12 inch frame.

Black Lace Shirt Extender

Before now I've added batik fabric to the bottom
 of a few of my blouses
and have been happy with the result.
Now I've sewn a black lace onto the bottom
of a camisole so it can be worn under
all my shirts.  Very simple quick solution.

Surface Design Group - Shiva Paint Sticks

Surface Design Group played with 
Shiva Paint Sticks this month. 
 I've seen demos yet this was my first time using them.
I used a friends hand made texture plate and a purple color on 
a hand dyed fabric where I wanted more purple. 
I also experimented on a commercial white on white fabric
hoping for a batik effect. 
I also experimented with cork letters (HOPE, LIFE)
my swirl stamps, rug canvas, gingko leaf texture plate,
hand made metal washer plate and a bathtub drain.
Through the fun I learned to look more decerningly for texture options,
I'm not sure I like that these take 3 days to dry yet after
washing  they are supposed to have a nice feel and be very stable. 
Who else has tried Shiva Paint Sticks. I'd enjoy to read your thoughts about them.

Chloe & Nana Scarfs In Local Shop

Displaying IMG_6386.JPG
Last year, I created a red scarf re-purposing batik strips 
and I wear it quite a bit.  I always receive favorable comments on it.
Now, my granddaughter and I create them together to sell.
Currently we put 20 of them in Cherry Street Kids Shop
in 3 different colors - red, green & black.
What a fun adventure.

Quilted Bow Ties

I met a first grade teacher of a local school who
 wears a unique bow tie
to teach daily. 
 He is hoping to eventually have 180 different ties for each school day of the year.
He's created ones from Playing cards, maps, legos, pencils and other elements. 
I wanted to add to his collection since he didn't have any quilted ties yet. 
His school colors are red and black and his college alma mater are Purple and Gold.   
The blue one is in there just for extra. I love this example of a fun teacher.
