Surprise! We’re on Pippa Eccles blog, at Quilting Arts! The Art Salad challenge from Cultured Cloth article got her attention. We’re famous!
This is the Monday, October 6, Art Salad project. Making a necklace, an experiment in balance. I will supply all the stuff you need to make 1 necklace, using natural stone beads, and glass or metal accents, with a silver plated chain. If you have a favorite color, you may bring beads to add to mine. I suggest size 8 seed beads, or larger, or crystals, etc.
If you want to join us, sign up at Two Twelve Arts.
Can you see designs like these as mosaics, or on quilts? This is in Claremont, California, a lovely city.
A cool thing I saw at the Ontario airport. This medallion has cut metal foil shapes all around it. Sorry I don’t know the artists’ name.
This is my entry to the Michigan Quilt Artists Invitational show. The theme this year is South of the Border. My quilt is called Papel Picado, for the cut paper flags used in celebrations. The opening was at Greater Flint Arts Council, and the show travels for 2 years, all over the state.
Mr. Hue, a very accomplished artist, who hand paints designs in exquisite detail, which are then transformed into fabrics we love to buy.
A beautiful wooden fish, seen as we filed out.
These orderly rows of palm trees are at the edge of the airport. Looks exotic to Michigan eyes.
