Flour Paste Resist
I've been playing with flour paste resist and bleach and I'm loving the results! I learned this in Jane Dunnewold's workshop and it is really fun. I've used both Kona cotton and P & B cotton and the color results are great. One trick I learned with the flour paste is to refrigerate the mixture before you use it. It is much easier to work with - a very nice consistency.
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!
