Complex Cloth Workshop
The view to the south from the ranch.
One piece I started there that I really like.
One of our lecture/critique/sharing sessions.
Our studio area.
Got back yesterday from a five day workshop with Jane Dunnewold. It was fantastic. It was sponsored by the Weehawken Art Center and held just outside of Ridgway, Colorado at Piecemaker's Ranch - a beautiful location. We stayed and worked at the ranch. It was like going to summer camp! We were so busy the entire time working on several different processes for surface design and layering those processes. We cut stamps, made stencils, made screens, used bleach, flour paste, glue, dye, paint - whew!
For the month of August I was the "Artist of the Month" at a local gallery. This was even more special to me as this was the first "fiber art" show they ever put on.
Grandbaby Number Five - I'm in Love
On July 22nd our youngest daughter gave birth to her first baby, a little boy, Mason. He weighed in at 8 lbs. 2 0z. and 22" long. He was beautiful from the very start. This was our first grandchild in 10 years, so we were really excited!
