|Maybe some piecework and stitching... Friday September 23|
I have a new piece in the works or the spring Kingstn Fibre Artists Show at the TETT mid-March through mid-April 2017, so have to get some sewing underway! The calendar is so busy and making time for stitching is just mandatory now as we head into September.
|Maybe a bit of Dye work on Saturday... September 24th|
You know me... most of my work is dye based and I like using MY OWN fabric - sure it is a white cotton base, but I add the colour, textre, line and stitch.
So I will make up some pre-mixed dyes (I will mixing them up on Friday night at the hall Odessa in case you want to join in and learn how to set up a dye run that can be saved and used over and over... likely 5-7 pm.)
Everyone who shows up on Saturday is welcome to join in and make it a DYE DAY!
|Sari Silk, stitch practice|
I have to admit that sometimes it is just too tedious for the arthritis plagued hands of this old artist, but I mutter "Yes, You Can" over and over as I start and soon I just find myself able to carry on.
It the colour and the texture and the line and shapes you can image up as you add the stitch. There are friends I really admire for their stitch abilities - Robin Field, Phillida Hargreaves, and Judy Martin... and now Mita Giacomini is my stitch idol.
The collection of threads grows, and I have more needles than I will ever use - time to get busy!
|PACKED in, the stitches become the fabric of our lives...|
Hope to see you soon... bring a couple of friends and spend a day or the whole weekend with us!
