Making Batik Sandwiches

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

Since the Artists Among Us show is on Mother’s Day week-end, I thought I would make a few things (in addition to the scarves) for moms. I put together eight of these today. Here is a detail.

I am going to embellish each hand with some pearls. Then I will add the backs and a little hanging ring.  I have so many batiks, I will never use them up!!

I want to do a few more landscapes on the 6″ X 6″ gallery wrapped canvases, too.

I spent most of the morning with my dental hygienist and my dentist. My teeth are sparkly clean and I have a temporary front tooth. I will go back in June to get fitted for a new crown.

We had some really wild weather this afternoon. It poured rain and hailed so much that it looked as if it had snowed. Then the sun came out.

Today was the unveiling of the Twelve X Twelve quilts in Australia. There are some photos of Kirsty and Brenda hanging them on the Twelve X Twelve blog. It made me so happy to see them there  in all their glory that I cried!
