Hi Suzanna,Wonderful!Love the rain effect! Kind of reminds me of the way that rain is often portrayed in traditional Japenese wood block prints, particularly those by my favorite, Hiroshige!Your shibori is coming on nicely. You must be thrilled with these results. In the square I see a landscape... water falling, sun/moon, mountains. Very peaceful to rest ones eye on. Will you stitch on that?Nice work! :)
Catherine, thank you so much! I hadn't thought of stitching on it...I was thinking of it as just a sampler, but now I'm seeing it a little differently. The shibori is a very magical process...so much happens and it is a big surprise.
Beautiful work Suzanne! : ) Have you seen my mom's penny-whistle quiltlet? She sent me a picture (it's not completed yet) and it looks so cool. I love to see your quilting projects, thank you!--Elena Como
I love that pink with the indigo! And your shibori looks wonderful. This is all new to me, so I am very much enjoying tagging along and learning from you as you learn! xo Kari of Writing Up A Storm
Thank you Kari and Elena...I'm so glad you're there!
It must be so much fun following this course. And you've got lovely results! And great to make your own cloth own fabric for the self-portrait.I've always been a bit afraid to follow an on-line course, I had doubts about it, whether it would be possible to learn something in this way. Your results show me that it is possible!XXX
Sandra, one of the things I like about the course is being able to do the lessons on my own time schedule. Glennis is offering skype sessions so we can speak with her, ask questions etc., and the lessons are organized and presented in an easily understandable way. It surprises me how much I'm enjoying making my own cloth for projects and it raises interesting possibilities. Thanks!
Thank you for joining me in France! What fascinating things you are doing. I tried dying cloth some years ago and would love to dye and paint silk.
Hi Elizabethd! The silk is a joy to work with...it is so light and responsive. Thanks so much for visiting.
Hi Suzanna, thank you for stopping by my blog. I used to paint on canvas also, and enjoy fabric dyeing and all the techniques. Your Shibori pieces are fantastic. I have played a bit with it and it is such fun! Looks like you like experimenting with all the wonderful ways to play with fabrics.. lets keep in touch! hugs, vivian
Thanks and welcome, Vivian!
Thanks for visiting my blog, Suzanna. Your fabric dyeing is looking fabulous, and I like the self portrait too. Lovely stitching!
Thank you Kaye!
