A splendid time was had by all...

I don't think I've had more fun in my whole life visiting with a friend as I've had this past three days. From start to finish, each day was a delight unto itself, jam packed with artmaking, sharing books and resources, and pouring our hearts out. I feel like I'm the one who's been on vacation!

We did two shibori batches today -- Jan's first experience with shibori -- and she created some awesome fabric. In fact, I learned a few things from her! I think I'll be doing a lot more again soon with a few new ideas and techniques. The pieces below are my work from today -- a few overdyes of previously ugly fabric, and some new pieces.

These collages above are from Monday and Tuesday this week.

Yep, I agree "absolutely awesome" The shibori is so tempting...hard to believe any started out life in the ugly pile.

I just did show and tell with my 3rd host, Vicki, at her beautiful home in Lake Oswego. she was awestruck, as I am, still1 Can't believe it! Elderly cousins were impressed, too. Connie, I had so much fun I was delirious! Merci to the ultimate power!
