We have such a creative and very prolific group of gals. A few months back we all went on a mini field trip to the new open studio/store of Folkwear. Some of us bought patterns - 3 of the one above. I've yet to make mine but Mareen made hers in a beautiful what looked to be a rayon, cotton blend. The fabric was soft, thin and had a beautiful hand to it, which was effective in this particular style. The fabric was striped with a fringe; the left side has a sleeve, the right just a piece that comes over to the left which is very pretty.
Lynne is a member of the Modern Art Quilt Guild and recently took part in a challenge - "Color Your Negative Space". A large bag held lots of crayons, each member was to reach in (no peeking!) and pick out 3 colors, then color those crayons on the challenge sheet (above left)....and then create a piece using just the 3 colors + white. A great idea for a challenge.
Linda makes the most amazing pots using 4 different types of materials. They are very organic looking. Some have patterning which she creates by pressing clear wrap and then wire etc. into them as they are drying (like the one below). They all have drainage and her plants are thriving.
Linda is a big Boston Terrier person and has always had them, fostered them etc....these are her children. "Charlie" (Charlene) is the granddaughter of my favorite one of her doggies - Libby who died a couple of years back....but little Charlie lives on and decided to join us for the meeting. I must say she was very well behaved and quite content to spend the day with us.
We had a wonderful meeting and came home full of inspiration, food and wine.
