Cynda is still loving the dyeing process. She's the only one among us who hasn't minded the extended winter season we've had since she uses the snow for her process.
Her most recent pieces feature the use of some acrylic templates to add shapes to her shibori dyeing.
(Martha is coveting this piece)
Cynda has also been enjoying playing with clay at the Neighborhood Art House, making pretty Christmas ornaments.
Lori is trying to finish her annual "Squatch" quilt to donate when she and Bill go to the convention (or festival?) in May. She has been using some new techniques for the shading as well as the 3-d leaves. Whoever wins this one will be very lucky!
Lori thought it would be fun to add a moon to her next landscape quilt, so she had some printed at Red Dog Enterprises. The other pictures are just to fill in the piece of fabric, but she has some fun ideas for how she might use them.
Susan is finishing up her "brown phase"- all the projects she brought to the retreat in February were brown. Her husband couldn't think of anything nice to say about this one, so he has said nothing. We all think it's very cool! The buttons on the right hand side don't show very well, but they are a perfect match for the piecing!
As long as she was thread sketching, she tried it on a different piece of silk. She's not sure what either piece will be when she's done, but she seems to be enjoying the process (and we are enjoying see what she did!)
Elaine did an online tutorial from Hilde Morin to make this bowl. She added the circles after the bowl was shaped just to make it more interesting.
Mary Kozub noticed the sad state of her mother's bedspread and decided a new quilt was in order. Her mom doesn't know it's coming.
