Fabric Audition

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009


I am in the process of auditioning fabrics for another Aspen landscape. One of the best parts of being a fiber artist is auditioning fabric for a piece. I get so excited when I make a discovery in my stash of art cloth such as this dye painted organza. I realized that if I cut it in strips, it would make perfect Aspens or Birches.


I went to High Fiber Diet tonight, my art quilt group. I met Terry at the Mexican restaurant next door for dinner. I had a fabulous Pozole soup. We talked about our Line Dancing show and possible venues and our next show which will be View from the Top. I hope we change the name to View from Above.

For a little levity, here is my silly Scooter hanging out in the studio with me. He is always on the move when he is not prone so the photo is sort of blurry. He is such a good boy, learning new commands every day. He loves to play fetch, and I think he sometimes wishes he had younger humans.
