Summer Projects

Here is the promised color picture of the guest towel that I taught last week. And here is a color picture of the book covers for this week. The paints I prefer are Dye-Na-Flow or Setacolor fabric paint by Pebeo. The Setacolor is available at Michael's.

I highly recommend shopping locally when possible, but if you can't find something of the surface embellishment genre I suggest you try the Dharma website:

Sue's Sharing

As with the name Pat, I have more than one Sue in class so here is their sharing.

It doesn't look like I'm going to have all 8 projects done for Tuesday. I have 5 done and 6 write-ups so far, plus I still need to put a syllabus together. This takes a loooong time to make this many new projects AND write directions!
I'm picking Pierre up at the airport tonight as he returns from Glacier National Park. I heard he saw a bear!

Peggy's bargello quilt. I think this was made with a photo printed on fabric :-)

My last week of vacation and wouldn't you know, I've been plagued with a charming series of headaches. Maybe I just miss all of you too much! See you next week!
