Playing With Bleach
I have some handpainted fabric that I did a while ago that I've been using to create a series called "Doors and Windows". I've laid some pieces of it out in what I've been calling vignettes. One of them is on the black background in the first picture on top. I've been thinking about what to put with it and here is a recent result. I started with deconstructed screen printed fabric I did in Rayna Gilman's workshop. I then sprayed it lightly with bleach and washed it out immediately. The dye discharged back to a light aqua. I think it has some potential.
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!
