I went to a demonstration day at our local sewing store given by the group I belong to- Lakeshore Fiber Arts group. We meet monthly to learn new techniques and review what we have worked on the past month. A few of the members gave demonstrations on surface design techniques and it was very well attended.
I also started an indigo vat down my basement using natural indigo, fructose and picking lime for the online class (called a 1-2-3 vat) I am doing given by Glennis Dolce at Shibori Girl studios. I was just going to be an observer this time and wait until summer. But thought I would just work a little each week in case I had questions so summer I can start a vat and keep it going in the sun.
Bad lighting in the basement but this is really a nice range of light blue on linen, silk and a bamboo-cotton blend.
And finally, for the week's work, I was machine quilting an old piece deemed worthy of finishing. I think about ten more hours of work left. And the new week has begun with this piece under my machine.
