Zippers! Not again- Rain and River.
Hand dyed fabric, this was white on white with butter fly's. See how nice the designs come out when hand dyed. Ok, first step, gluten for punishment.. try again. I found a little purse I could copy. I thought.
I quilted the fabric, then put in the zipper, and then could not close it, pulled and tugged, then got my Rotary Cutter out... and cut it off.. dove into my Velcro mess.
Guess this needs sorting. But I found some. AND
Finished! It closes, keeps the change in and best of all Finished. I think I need a class in Zippers!
Another day shot! But I did disengage all the Velco, and wrapped them on a the cardboard inside of a paper roll. PS, I watched UTube, do you realize how much time that takes up!
It has been raining a lot up the in the mountains and here locally,
This is our lower field, Ralph is standing in an area that we have to drive over to this other area of our land. The river is usually on the far side. This is so different from the land one of our neighbors has further up the river, she has all rock and fantastic waterfalls.. we have mostly sand, with several, what we call islands. Our house is up the hill behind where I took the photo, our only concern is that if the water rises, it washes out fencing for our llamas', that happened one year and we had to move the fencing away from the " creek" over run... or the water on this side. In the summer this is all dry.. hard to believe. It is beautiful and a bit noisy right now..
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.
