Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season. Have been enjoying the off and on snow in our mountains for the last 2 week but do hope to be able to get the our daughters for Christmas. I plan to do better keeping my blog update in 2009 – I have backed out of many things this years and plan to devote more time to the art. I have been spending time playing with surface design and plan to do more Shibori this year.
This is my 2008 Bernina Fashion Garment – It is made of black, fushia, gold and hand dyed silks. Metallic threads, gold beads and crystals. The pattern for the leaves came from my oak trees. I enjoyed working on it and was thrilled to see it on the runway in Houston.
Old and New – California Gold – Priceless
I have also been working with Lutador and making Bark post cards. It was painted with a number of transparent paints then sprayed with gold glitter- when dry I used the heat gun and burned holes in the base fabric. Stitched yarn and then stitched rows of thread to show knot holes in the bark.
Enjoy it is fun to let go and play.
