New work & some old works completed

More fiber postcards and some finalized ones. Actually they are just small works and I may stop making them exclusively as postcards. I have found a venue for selling these works and am anxiously waiting to see the response. Worse case I get them back and send them off to friends and family. I'm having fun so it doesn't really matter.

Michael's Master Class

This summer I had the pleasure of attending a Michael James master class. I was in way over my head but it was a wonderful learning and freeing experience. Watching other serious fiber artists work helped me to see many more possibilities in my own work. While I worked using my conventional techniques I realized that I could create alot more of my ideas if I freed myself from a rigid design approach that allowed for mistakes and evolution of the final design. Here are two works that I created during this time (still waiting to be finished...)

This first piece was actually meant to be the leaf form of a plant. Michael suggested that I turn it on its side and create a landscape. I did not have any of the 'right' fabrics for it but somehow I managed to do it. I like what happened...

One of Michael's favorite lines is ' size matters'. Here I scaled up my distorted seed pods to a grand scale and created three of them, each one being at least 12" on a side.

Natalie's Workshop

Recently treated myself to a quilting adventure by attending a Hudson River Valley Fiber Art Workshop ( ) with Natalie Sewell ( .

The first top is a stand of tall trees mixed with dogwoods. (Still need to quilt it).

The second top (a work in progress...)

is based on a picture of the Gardens of Lombardy

from a book of Italian Gardens that Edith Wharton loved.

Some new designs in progress...

FIber art postcards - first attempt

My first attempt at creating fiber art postcards. I hope to complete these and more in time to submit to Fiberart for a cause ( )

Homage2Matisse is based on one of his collages.

Secret Message is a study in black and white

Finally, "Black and white and red all over" is an abstraction and uses the scraps from the previous one.


This blog is meant to serve as an online journal of my fiber art creations.
