New Work

What a nice day this has been. Yesterday I finished my Running Fence piece but had to let it soak to wash out the stabilizer and then iron it this morning. Got a picture of it for you...It is called East Meets West and has original fabric from the Running Fence project In Marin and Sonoma counties in 1972 by Christo and also the Gates project from this past year in New York, thus the name. It looks a little wonky but is made to hang from the original grommets on a rod and then be suspended from the ceiling. It is neat when the breeze hits it.

and here is a detail
also am almost finished with my journal quilt...just need to do a little transfer on it and then write up the statement and get the sleeve put on and ship it off. It will get done this weekend and then will hit the road!

Played with some curtain, upholstery and wallpaper samples today and made a little fabric collage which was fun but a no brainer.

Best of all, I just had a full body massage and then dinner which has put me in a pretty mellow place......

See ya...

got to start working on plans for a class!
