It’s been awhile again since I’ve blogged…I’m getting so lazy!
Update on the Arts Council show…I got a call last Wednesday that I have been awarded an Honorable Mention award…yeah for fiber! Rayna wrote me a nice note and said that this is extra special because this is recognition in an art show. Thanks, Rayna.
Update on the Runaround Bag…I decided not to go with those antique buttons. Instead…I think some fun, funky buttons are called for…
I have been dyeing some fabric to replenish my supply. The multicolored ones sell pretty well for me. The striped ones were hung on the clothesline and I poured the dye on them. That was sorta fun if you can keep the dye off your toes…I may do more, mostly because I would like to use them myself. I also soda soaked some white cotton and hung on the line…and guess what showed up? The Japanese beatles swarmed the white cotton…go figure…they must like the soda ash.
Last week I prepared some discharged black sateen pieces to sell and to stitch on.
I will be making more of these…”painting” on black cloth with dishwashing gel is too much fun.
