Meeting of the Crones

Our day of Marbling fabric and paper
     This month...May...we met a week earlier than usual as the last Monday, our scheduled day, is Memorial Day.  For  a long time we have been wanting to learn to marble on fabric and paper.  So we finally got a day to do it.  We have also been wanting to do some sort of dyeing under my fabulous live oak tree but the weather had seemed to be against us.  This was the perfect day!
     Seven of us got together with our prepared fabric and set up to Marble!  The stuff to use to thicken the surface to marble on was some I had had for a long time so I don't know if it was just old or we didn't quite do it right because we had a little trouble getting our base thick enough to float the paint....but that did not stop us from having a terrific time.  And I think we learned enough that we will want to try it again...with new materials!!!!
     It really doesn't matter what we do, we always have fun and tend to inspire each other to bigger and better things!  We always have a show and tell and share ideas, books, websites, etc.  And of course we always eat and laugh....a lot!!!!
