MAY 2017

Wow. Time flies quickly. I like this blogging once per month - I don't feel guilty if I haven't written anything and I can add to the post as I can - sweet!

The month started with the Quilt Guild meeting - presentation was by Mary Lou Weidman (www.marylouquiltdesigns.com) - very creative and fun -

On the 6th, Dave and I went to Fair Park to see Lisa Covert's show -
It was beautiful and I was so happy to see a good contingent from the Fiber Artists!
Lisa and me
DAFA members
We also went to a couple of estate sales during the month (looking for just the right piece of art for the living room), but I was the only winner - scored a couple of cool quilts and a wonderful sewing box!

Art for the month -

Made a postcard for Lu using some of the scraps she had given me -

Spent some time using shibori techniques with Tsuniko ink -
and I attended the monthly SAQA meeting at Jules' house, where we spent most of the day using powder reactive dyes - such fun! (I didn't take my camera because I was certain I would get it covered in dye and my phone had almost no battery power left!)

My results of the day, in addition to the navy one above:
I love the vibrancy of the powdered dyes, but (due to space), I'll stick to the small container dying for now...

and last, but not least...
