We had our annual Fiber Junkies party a while back...I've been running back and forth to Atlanta and been so busy, I've not done anything blog related....but this is my journal and I do love a record of the wonderful times in my life...
Some other wonderful show and tells came from Denny who is not only a wonderful technician but incredibly prolific. She was especially pleased with her new top made with African fabrics. The blocks were so interesting, especially loved the one dealing with the cotton fields. What a great interpretation.
And now onto the best part - our gift exchange. We do a white elephant but a nice "elephant"...it's great fun and think we all go home very happy. Mary made her hand felted candle holders on right and Gen got a huge box of Sharpies. She loves working with markers and paper so this was right up her alley.
We never know what we're going to get but it seemed to work out that the perfect gift was matched with the right person....so here's mine. First of all, Denny is a master at creating fabric. This beautiful piece of silk noil (top left) would have been enough but inside was Rayna Gillman's newest book. I'm a big fan of Rayna...both of her work and her personally so this was a thrill to get.
Sandra on the left was a guest at our meeting this time and the sister of Susan on right....don't they look like twins?....Susan is our newest member and does incredible work.
So yes I realize I'm missing as I was the picture taker...and what I will say about myself is that I'm just happy to be part of such a nice group of girlfriends who inspire me and make me laugh.
