I’m Back

 After finally getting my blog going I got so busy with other stuff that I sorta dropped the ball – I just got back from a family picnic in CT- with all my sisters, cousins, my aunt and their families – I have the best family on the planet- I am so so lucky!!
 I have been working on a collaborative fiber art piece, with my friend Linda, for the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen’s Fair. http://www.nhcrafts.org/craftsmens_fair/fair_home.html   We decided to do it last November and submitted our proposal in February. We first did a smaller prototype for our submission application & since then we have been dyeing cottons, painting silks … and just last week we finished assembling the top. Now it’s back with me for machine quilting. The pressure is on! We only get together a few times a month so it’s been slow going –but we have a well organized work plan & homework assignments so we are right on schedule.
 Sorry no pics til our unveiling at the Fair in August. –    So here’s a pic for you of an older work that I did for a challenge for a small fiber art group I belonged to –
It doesn’t seem very clear –but hopefully I will improve my computer & blogging skills more and more as I go on.

I’m learning as I go along & it is taking forever! Just figured out how to get this pic here & tweaked the brightness by using Windows Live Writer –pretty cool huh? Well it’s taken me all morning to just do this – so time to go and  actually make stuff.
