Miranda had the luxury of living nearby to the quilt shop, so after a bit of demo, she took her piece of soy silk fusion home, sewed as she desired, and returned to our little group to complete the hand stitching! I admire her forethought! She has constructed a 3-part card case for her students to use. It is quite complicated and very, very dear:
This is Martha, a most artistic soul! I was blown away when I saw this piece of hers in the quilt shop...fortunately for me it was AFTER our first day of class, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to teach her!!! I asked her to please share it with our class, and so she did. Here it is:
Martha has appliqued all of the pieces of the beach scene onto the "sand" fabric. It is quite amazing in real life...sorry you are not here to fondle it!!
And here is Martha with her beautiful journal cover, a gift for one of her grand daughters. (ok, I'm challenged here: is it one word with one "d" or two words, or what????)
Once again, the photo doesn't do the piece justice! Martha had stamped fish and leaves (ala seaweed) on this journal, and they all worked so well with the oceanographic soy silk fusion. Great job Martha!
Robin had already wowed us with her bead work and her felting, etc., so I guess she figured she could just kick back and play around with her soy silk fusion! She was in the process of fashioning a pin/broche from a piece of her soy silk fusion. Hey, the sky's the limit!!!
Chico's needs to discover Robin BIG TIME!!! In the meantime, I am in hopes that Robin will teach me some added beading techniques.
And here is Pat, sewing away on her lovely clutch purse:
Once again, both words and photos do not do justice to the loveliness of Pat's gorgeous piece!
I feel honored to have spent the weekend with this talented group of ladies and to have shared in their creative journey. Thanks again Ladies!
