Yesterday I finished this very small hanging for a friend. There is a little bit of fabric weaving in the center...the border is strips from my grandmother's shawl and the hanger is made from braided bits of the same shawl. The body of it is made from silk batting. See the bee?
Saturday was an amazing day. I went to the quilters' drop-in and on the way passed a little garage sale where I found this rug. It's about 6 feet long. Evidently a family member brought it back from Turkey, but the people decided not to keep it because of a few holes and so they were selling it for $10. I asked them if they were totally sure of that price and they were, so I am very grateful. Doesn't that look like a lighthouse on the top?
Then, on the way home, I bought this silk hanky in an antique store. After I finish admiring it, I may chop it up for inclusion in another cloth.
I've also started making cloth in Jude's workshop and I'll put up pictures of my experiments soon. She is a wonderful teacher; the techniques and the results are very satisfying.
