Fiber Art Show and Sale NEXT WEEK

YIKES!!! so much to do and so little time!  Let's see, I have indigo dyed bamboo socks, eco and indigo dyed silk charmeuse, chiffon, habotai, silk/wool blend, silk cotton blend scarves and wraps; felted soaps, felt flowers (not as many as I had planned since I only have two hands - really!), nuno scarves, a couple of nuno jackets and felted vests, AND indigo dipped leggings as well as some wall hangings and some lovely silk eco prints that I plan to hang in the gallery so they will "float" as the air moves (going to sell some of my silk fusion hand stitched samples as well to make room for new).

Hoping to do some eco printed cards and labels as well but time is running out!  If you are within driving distance, come see the show and join in the fun - have some wine Friday night and see some demos on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

There are twelve other artists and I am the only felt maker, so there will be lots of wonderful variety to enjoy.

Still spaces left for the FanciFULL vest workshop on November 1, 2 and 3 for the Weavers Guild of Greater Baltimore!   Come join in the fun and create two pieces of creative felt on day one, cut them up on day two and stitch them up into a great creative vest on day 3.  Learn how to free-motion stitch your felt pieces together into a unique garment.  This is the front of Eve's vest from our Opulent Fibers workshop and I'm sure she and the others would tell you how fun and creative the process is!  Let me know if you need more information!

The Elusive Orange Eucalyptus - FINALLY!!!

I have grown old while trying to achieve the bright orange red euca prints - FINALLY!!!   Yesterday morning when I opened my bundles, to say I was ecstatic was an understatement - my husband came to see what all the fuss was about and the high is still with me!  It has literally taken me years - and the best part?  My very own euca tree (baby that she still is, gave me wonderful pints).

As "crazy eyes" (Orange is the New Black, actress) said on a PBS interview "my mom told me in her African accent that something always comes from working haaaard"!!!  and yes I worked very haaaaard!

So here they are!  Euca overdyed on indigo, or osage orange and the small leaves are from my sweet tree!   I also got a couple of euca plants with tiny leaves that you can see in the second picture.
