Judith blogged about the playdate with her daughter Ellen and grand daughter Abby here. As a matter of fact I am expecting her today and we will play with thickened dyes - I'm sure I'll show you.
This is Laura who came for three days of fun. You've already seen the results. We are having lunch courtesy of her husband Dominic.
A beautiful hand painted stone necklace from Laura. How did she know I love rocks??
A 4 X 6", 12 X 12" and 12 X 18" piece of soft-kut from Blicks. I am going to make three huge stamps (probably with crows) so stay tuned for that!! The rotary cutter is to lend proportion.
Had to wait an hour in Bangor so I went to Walmart to kill time. I got great curved needles for sewing coptic bindings, two kinds of fabric glue, an X-acto cutting mat extra thick since an X-acto knife will cut right through a rotary cutting mat and 2 yards of 100% polyester satin for transfer dyeing like the two pieces below.
Give-away. These are so-so books. I thought the animal one would be better and I don't do tradition Baltimore Album quilts. I think I got the Baltimore book free???? Anyone interested leave a comment and which book you are interested in.
Root Beer label I really loved. Look at the graphics of the boy in the boat. YUM!
Made in Maine!!
This is a sideways picture of a prayer flag Judith made me. I LOVED this fabric she made at my house. The stitching means "for Beth". The figure 8 with the line through it is my "mark" or signature: back to back Bs. Thank you Judith!!
