Journal from Sunny
I just received this beautiful Journal from Sunny Hemphill in Washington. She has painted the fabric, and printed an old postcard from Egypt on the front and back. She used a key on a ribbon for the book mark, and has painted the fabrics back and front. I posted the journal I made for exchange a few months ago and sent it to Sunny. We are part of a Fiber Arts Group on Yahoo.. these ladies are such fun, and really make an artist stretch. Nothing is beyond their ideas.. Just see Leilani Pierson, 5 day Quilt Challenge in Quilting Arts, page 66. My copy just arrived today in the mail so you know what I am going to do this evening. Settling back and reading from cover to cover.
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.
