Demolition continues! But I will tell you this...My mind may be as young as it used to be but my body definitely is not. It's a lot harder to crawl around in tight spots than it used to be! Where has the time gone?!
We spent the beginning of last week getting the front Studio ready for Mitten Mania this week and for our first rental group that is coming to play this Saturday.
This past weekend we hosted Linda Misa from Australia. Oh! We learned so much and she was such a patient teacher! We got our hands into the paints and used the jelly plate printing on silk and cottons.
I barely made the photo, but we thought it would be fun to take a selfie and capture the memory of the moment.
I think you can see a little piece of the fabrics on the body of the doll (below) as well as those hanging on the tree in front of the store.
What a beautiful piece of fabric you can create on taffeta silk! I have always preferred Dupioni silk with its fun textures but this has me sold on taffeta for some applications. I can see this process being used to make my own fabrics for tote bags and pillows.
My 'Shelby' doll...
Now to finish her wings with free motion embroidery, and then I can call her complete. Thanks Linda, Nancy Jo and Velda for a great, creative couple of days.
I'm off to work on the Open House. Hold the dates and come visit us November 6th and 7th. There will be lots of specials on Internet Fabrics and lots of new Funky Fibers products. Hope to see you then!
