"a good day
Not only did I see a fabulous fiber show with two of my favorite fiber artists, I got another completed block (at 7:30 am this morning, so it took me by surprise)
Kathleen Van Meter decided she should continue the hand theme from her workshop block, so once again, we see the beauty of simple stitching. My math is always suspect, but I think we are 14 down, 7 more to go.
wow, what a terrific group we turned out to be.
now, more on the other reason it was a good day.
Kathleen, Sue Jones and I drove down to the Dayton Art Institute to see Changing Landscapes: Contemporary Chinese Fiber Art, on view until June 17. wow. it was well worth the trip; if you can find a way to get down there, do it.
mostly outstanding work. tapestries, needle punch embroideries, lots of wrapping (yum); snow crystals made out of fishing line, 45 pieces, I think. wow, wow, wow. a few weavings that were stuck in the 70's and 80's, but mostly, fabulous.
