This sketch book is for my granddaughter, Adrian, who attends Moore college of Art and Design in Philadelphia. She will be 20 and I have started what I hope will be a practice of making her a new sketch book each birthday.
Do you remember this ugly fabric from last month. I cut it up and made a Rail Fence quilt from it. Well I just finished it with two more borders, batting, and free motion quilting. It has already been sent to Brunswick to PuppyLoveME to be auctioned off or sold outright at next years fund raising event. Over the winter I will (hopefully) make 2 more lap quilt for the pups!!
A sneak preview of a new series of workshops coming to Mid Coast Maine June 22, 23, 24th 2018
Midsummer is an important holiday in Scandinavia
and Europe. We will be celebrating the longest day of the year, summer solstice, by having three days of workshops
centered on mark making. We will start the weekend making a book by hand then
develop tools we will use to make marks with ink and stitch in fiber
and paper. The main goal of the weekend is for
our imaginations and creativity to go places we have never been. New ideas and
concepts about mark, stitch, and design will be plumbed as we each use these
new found ideas as springboards for creativity.
Throughout the winter I will be posting examples of avenues we will be exploring. This may be the time to expand your mind around design and creativity.
Here are a few scarves I made using shibori in the indigo vat. The scarves are all infinity scarves in buttery rayon. They are all a generous 21.5" X 77" and they for sale for $25. plus a few dollars shipping. Just leave me a comment if you are interested.
This is a waterfall jacket in rayon in an XL. It would fit anyone. It was snow dyed, then indigo dyed on my vent pipe then submerged in the indigo vat; so it was dyed 3 times. It's looking pretty interesting. It is $30. plus postage. sold
