Surface Design Workshop Fiber Art Collage Completed

Purposeful askew edges bound with soft 
edge strips complete this collage 
that began in a Surface Design Group experimentation.

Shibori Results From Local Cloth Workshop

Here's the results from the hand dyed Shibori
workshop I attended recently. 
Of course the blue is my favorite.
Thanks Eileen from New World Textiles for the
fun afternoon.
I'm considering hand painting on the yellow and purple pieces in a blue
to match the blue piece and use them in a collage.

Moda Jelly Roll Race @ Asheville Quilt Show

Wild Waves Batik Jelly Roll 2.5" Precut Cotton Fabric Quilting Strips Assortment #4341JR
I am excited to be on a team for a Jelly Roll Race at the Asheville Quilt Show
ModaFabrics .  Basically, Moda Fabrics donates
 a Jelly Roll ( 2 1/2 inch strips of coordinating fabrics)
and the team competes to put it together into a small quilt which is later completed and donated to Community quilts.  It's a win/win for everyone. 
It should be lots of fun!

Surface Design With Gelli Plates | Fiber ART Collage

I met recently with a newly formed Surface Design group
where we tried out Gelli printing using 
a Gelli plate, textile paint and various
objects and shapes. I am creating a Fiber Art
Collage from my pieces where I used resists of thread spools, 
 a potato masher,  bubble wrap,mesh and doily stencils.
Slow stitching these hand painted pieces together is 
very relaxing.

"Closing" | A 35 Year Chapter of Life

We have officially "closed" a long chapter of our lives. As the LORD would have it, 35 years to the day, we sold our home where we moved with our one year old girl in 1981. Only God would plan so many adventures for us there with many more children, & grandchildren. He is Faithful and we are looking forward to our next chapter and adventures.
