The ramblings of a Creative Crone! I consider myself to be the Grandma Moses of the Fiber Arts World as I came to the art late in life. My blog will consist of my art; art of others; an occasional book review because when not creating, I am reading; perhaps an enlightening discussion on a favorite quote...and positive discussions of politics/world affairs only!
"A mind too active is no mind at all." Theodore Roethke
Saturday...rodeo and dinner with the family at Marti's. We were going to have the dinner after the rodeo at our house, but because we had no fridge and our power was being very erratic, we decided to do all the cooking but take everything into Marti's. Andrea came here after everything and spent the night.
Sunday....Andrea helped me download our new, wonderful "anti-virus" etc. program. Then after she left, the guys from Loew's showed up with our new refrigerator. It is really nice...the French doors with the pull out freezer drawer.
Monday....I hosted the studioQ group here...we had a great time playing with monoprinting on gelatin blocks. I had made small ones for everyone to have and covered up all my stuff in my studio to protect it from wild painters. (If you watch "Dexter", the good serial killer, I was preparing my room like he does his "kill" room!)
Here we are painting away on our little blocks. And here are some of the prints..I have been playing around with it today on different fabric...black..and am beginning to really like the process.
After we cleaned up, while the prints were drying, we had our show and tell. Here is some of the wonderful examples of what this terrific group can do!
Here is one of Heathers.
This is Nancy's "recipe" quilt, so far.
And this is Susan's "recipe" quilt.
And another quilt by Heather...using a lot of her own hand dyed.
Bethany shows a quilt she and her daughter are making together.
Wendy also dyes most of her own fabric.
Beth is showing a quilt she did with an international group. (My new fridge in the background!)
And...the sun came out today for the first time in days....and..granddaughter made it to district swimmeet which is next weekend!!
