Brief "Hello"

I have returned from a wonderful Art Quilt Retreat in Gateway Canyons, Colorado. It was an amazingly beautiful area. The photos are of the pallasaide and my quilted painting of it. I'm all inspired and excited about further exploration of the technique.

Coming home I learned that I had won Best Pictorial for my quilt "Tidepools". That was exciting!

I leave again Friday for three weeks of fun and teaching, so I'll come back ready to go to work.
On April 27 we start silk dyeing so choose your method of how you want to put colored dye onto silk.
It will be lots of fun.

Bye for now

I will be gone baby sitting and attending an ART QUILT Seminar in Colorado so I will not be here at my computer banging out messages on my blog. (They're not that great anyway)

One half a day of cotton dyeing on Wednesday so bring your salt water soaked cotton, rayon or linen and either microwave dye or low water immersion dye them. Then be planning on what wonderful things you will be using all your yummy hand dyed fabric for.

I will hopefully come back with lots of new ideas for us to explore.
