Fiber Post Cards

The final items that I will have time to make for next weekends art show are these fabric post cards. They really can be mailed. When I took my first one to the post office to be mailed she wanted me to put it in an envelope. She was missing the whole point. I mailed it to myself to see how it would fair. And it arrive in great shape.
What a fun Mothers Day card.

New journal

Just finish this journal for next Saturday's art show.
The pages are mostly blank and ready to be filled in as you like.
The back cover

Indonesian Quilt Project

This is a quilt I am doing on commission. The top two fabrics are batiks that were purchased in Indonesia and will soon be turned into a quilt.

Fun with Photoshop

Created these different images today with Photoshop Elements 7. What great fun. It's feels like being a kid again and just exploring what will happen if I try this. I'm not even stressing over the outcome.

Can't wait to see how they look printed. I think I will print some on fabric for one of the journal pages

Les Femmes des Montage - Spring Event

Les Femmes des Montage is now five years old. We are now planning our first Spring Event. This show is quite different from our Fall show. This event will focus more on classes. We are not all giving classes this year, me included. But we will all have displays of our art for sale. I was just not ready to create a class on short notice, not to mention trying to create one during tax season. However, next year I hope to be able to offer a class. Any ideas?

I have wanted to do some "spring" items. It would be pretty difficult to sell wool scarfs in May.

The first item was suggested by my son. I have put together several packages of "Remnants". These are irregular strips left over from other quilts. They are great for of course, "Scrap Bookers", non-sewers, who may not have a lot of fiber on hand and what to include fiber in their arts, flower making, experimenting with color combinations you might not ordinarily use and embellishing all kinds of creations.

First design of bird cage. More designs to come. And perhaps some fiber bird houses.
