At "Show and Tell" I displayed the beading I had done on the dyed silk cocoons.

I taught a fun Lutradur class. Everyone enjoyed using a soldering iron and a heat tool to make 3D dragonflies and butterflies.


October 2016
I had a fun time using ice cubes and procion dyes to create some lovely fabrics. The photos below show how the ice looks with one colour of dye sprinkled on it, and how the final fabric looks after it all melts. I used three different dye colours to get this effect. Iím looking forward to creating a lovely art piece with this fabric.

I was hired to embellish some African fabric for a woman who wanted to wear it like a shawl. After stabilizing it, I was able to then add beads to the neck-lines and skirts of all the cute little figures. A different woman wanted to buy it before the new owner could even put it on!
