Mary Hertert Show & Student Work, Melanie Ver Duin

This is Mary Hertert, friend & local fiber artist. She owns Color Creek. She has a show along with my friend Kathy Harte, that opened this evening at Terra Bella. Warren & I stopped by, & he indulged me by buying this luscious 4 yards of silk hand dyed fabric. I think I may make a kimono to wear with slacks. It is a yummy piece of fabric.


Melanie Ver Duin took my Embellishment class last September in Grand Haven, Michigan. She was kind enough to send me these pictures of a small quilt she finished from a piece she started in my class. It's titled "Embellished Fall".



Thanks Melanie! I love it when my students share their work!

I enjoyed catching up with your blog. Many things stood out for me, but I'll just mention a few. The quilted decking is lovely and I loved those rhubarb leaf dishes. Carys is going to love that bunny you made her and that yellow quilt is beautiful.
