Congratulations are in order for my friend, Lynn Krawczyk! Her book is finally in print, and it is beautiful!
Lynn is an amazing artist and writer. Her book shows you many interesting ways to get paint of fabric, it is a delight! Congratulations, Lynn, job well done!
I embroidered the voodoo symbol for Papa Legba, and I’m pretty pleased with how it came out.
I made a couple of queens for our fiber art group. Our theme was couples, pairs, two of a kind, so I went with red queens.
Only Jan Waller could get me to take fleece and hot water in hand again to try to make felt. She taught a group of us to make little vessels, and I just finished decorating mine.
I’ve added stitching and beads, and I rather like the way it turned out.
The problem, of course, is what can you keep in a felt vessel with a narrow opening. The only thing I’ve come up with so far are twigs.
It’s easy, she said, stitch some fabric on a sweatshirt, cut it here, sew it there, and you’ve got a beautiful jacket! So far I have a very ugly jacket, and I’m not showing it to you.
Hmmmm…What’s in the box? Shall we have a look?
Let’s start pulling things out and see.
This one says “beware”, I think we’ll leave it alone for now.
There’s some info on the artist.
There are various prints.
There’s even a book of prints.
Anyone for a game of gin?
Here’s some postcards.
Of course we have voodoo dolls.
It’s time to get back to this box, what could be inside?
Oh, how silly!
