Stitch Journeys

Join me on my Stitch Journey as I explore art and life.

Taking responsibility!


Is this a riot or what? Tico took my Bodacious Beading class on line at FAMM. I accept full responsibility for creating yet another bead addict!

The new round of classes are posted on FAMM and there are more teachers this quarter. Head on over to check out the great line up of classes that you can take in your PJs...I love on-line classes! I am not teaching Bodacious Beading this quarter though...you will have to wait until the new year. But, I am teaching my fantastic According to You class! I love this class and it is everything I wish I had known when I first started working with collage. The timing is great too because these mixed media memory books make awesome holiday presents. You don't have to make a book in the class, you can make a wall hanging if you prefer.

Tea Ceremony



I have been catching up with sleep, chores and some fun projects since the retreat. This collage is one of my fun projects. I love this image. There are a variety of mixed media techniques in this piece. I really enjoyed it's creation...especially all the hand work. Hand stitching is so relaxing for me. I never get tired of collage. Isn't that hand dyed paisley fabric great? Another one of my treasures from Artist Artifacts. Judy, the brilliant talent behind Artistic Artifacts, creates the most luscious hand dyed fabrics. I tried my hand at some low water immersion hand dyeing this weekend with some great and some not so great results. I will have some photos later...I am still rinsing out fabric. Judy certainly doesn't have to worry about fewer sales from me though...my stuff isn't any where as good as hers. Practice certainly makes for more beautiful dyed fabric. Plus hand dyeing is a LOT of work. I was exhausted!

Liz--
I am touched and honored that you posted my "beadback" about my experience being your beading student.
That's very exciting that you're working with dying fabric. Dying fabric is always full of suprises. What's cool about dyed fabric is that if you don't like how it turns out, it can be a Bob Ross "Happy Accident" that can find a home in a different project than the one intended.
Thanks again for the wonderful Bodacious Beading Class. I will post the finished project on my blog soon.
