Creative Play Day

Today was a fun day at my quilt guild. Rene Haag, local business owner of Blaine's Art Supply came & demonstrated several different products on fabric. She also brought artist& silk painter, Francine
to help demonstrate. 

My son's girl Barb came along with me,

& we had a great time playing.
Afterward we went home, & I showed her how to use the sewing machine. She's never sewn before!
She stitched down this little applique' block,

then put this wool design on the back side that she felted herself. Now it's a little double sided piece of art from her heart. She gave it to me in thanks for showing her how to sew.

Below is the bag that I did at quilt Guild. The grapes are a monoprint from an Encaustic wax, that after it cooled I over-sprayed with inks & dabbed with paints, & pens.
It was so much fun, I signed us up for a silk painting class on Saturday!

Nothing better than a fiber buddy and to have it be someone special makes it, well, Special! Enjoy!

Hello Deb. It is wonderful being creating and trying news things. I love the wee Art Piece the girlfriend created especially the wool art she added to the back. Pretty neat. Nice to share our talents.. I am sure she was very appreciated.. Hugs Judy
