SAQA Mini Group and Daily Stitching #2 Done

Last Friday four SAQA members and a guest (an artist, but not with fiber) met at my house. We started by spending time in Studio B looking over some of the wonderful artwork in the trunk show.

Linda V, Carol, Gail, Mary Beth and Carol with the trunk show.

We ate lunch and had some wonderful discussions about what each of us wanted from the group. Then back out to the studio to play with some indigo.

It was a great afternoon that slipped by very fast.

Over the weekend I came home from my walk with a large handful of leaves, so I had to do some printing. I think I ended up with about 25 prints.
The top row is gelli prints on muslin, the middle row is botanical prints on silk broadcloth that were dipped in indigo at the end of their two hour steam bath and the bottom row is botanical prints on silk broadcloth. Some of these will be used in my weekly leaf series, the rest will go in my stash and they may show up next year in a weekly series.
