2006 YoYo Haiku Challenge
Our YoYo group loves to do challenges.. and we are game for almost any thing,, you might have noticed.. In 2006 we decided to write a Haiku together, and then interpret it in a small quilt of our choice.. Plus adding one fabric.. the crazy one with the circles. "Fabric Sings As, Loving Hands, Make Joyful Creations, Laughing YoYo's." The size is 12w. X 15L. I used hand dyes fabric ( which I had dyed myself), Commercial fabrics, Hand and Machine stitching, Ink Jet Printing of photos, buttons, charms, beads, and hand dyed threads. It was great fun to make, once I had a direction.. That I think is some times the hardest part for me, coming up with an idea. I think this was one of our better challenges. Great fun!
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
