I made a fiberart piece that I could not show until now. It is for the Stretching Art and Traditions Challenge. Here are my in progress photographs.
|Working on the petals|
I quilted the background with horizontal straight lines. It does not show up very well in the photographs. I also quilting some red lines to add detail to the red of the petals.
Trimmed and bound, it went off to the coordinator in time to go to the first show!
On the right, the beginner's first day's worth of spinning. On the left is the beginner's second day (in a row) spinning! I am really enjoying the art of spinning! Not sure that I will ever get to the point where I can spin lace weight yarn. But I think I have the hang of spinning fun, chunky, playful yarn!
We had three reasons to make the trip to Tennessee. One, visit family. Two, pick up the spinning wheel. And Three, attend our sister-in-law's graduation from the University of Alabama Huntsville! (yeah, that is 2 states. Their farm is in Tennessee and Huntsville is about an hour and a half drive away) I am so proud of Christine! She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BA in English! As I told you last week, her short story won Best in Fiction in the English department. If you did not get a chance to read it, here is the link again. Very timely story, thanks for all the positive feedback. I have been reading your comments to her. Now that she is done with classes, she will be working on more of the stories in the series.
