Silk & more Silk
Next was to decide on the kite shape, and layer the fabric on the Peltex. I worked my self into a corner.. But will be adding yarns, buttons and beads, so that is ok. This is on going because right now, a different dead line is looming.
Sisters 7 is setting up the Window at the Movie theater this week and must decide what I am going to show there.
Entry to Sierra Art Trails is due this week, and what am I going to show in the catalog. My dear friend and fantastic photographer David Hoffman is going to take photos of some fiber pieces for me. We met on Saturday, because I was afraid it would snow on Monday... and it did.. Funny more snow and hail in Fresno then in our town in the mountains.
On to a new project.. a Crazy Quilt Kite.. pulled out the silk ties, silk scraps, some hand dyes and batiks.. One step at a time.
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.
