much needed rain, just as I'm going out!

It is pouring rain - I'm typing this now as a procrastination, since I don't really want to go out in that downpour and get soaking wet just to mail my art trades.

here is what I've done lately -
this is at C&T Publishing:
done for their new product "Liquitex® Acrylic Iridescent Medium" which was so much fun to play with, I had a hard time deciding what to do for the project - it can be used on almost anything, wood, paper, clay or my personal favorite - fabric!  This piece will be traveling with them while they introduce the new product at shows, then go to a retailer for display.  I won't get it back, so I'll have to make another one for myself!  Of course, it would never be possible to make two of these identical - so the next ones will all be different and unique!  That's what I love about fiber art!   Go to C&T's website for more info on their new products, including the new inks!

The 4x6ers theme this month is 'Symbols' so I chose... oops, can't tell yet - it's a surprise, but here's a little hint: 

and FIBER ART TRADERS are swapping ATC's based on "Women In Construction" - so I did a little self-portrait set based on the plumbing I did on my first house back in 1970....  this was not the original blue print, that has long since dissintegrated; but a little freebie I found on the www:
which I put on the ATC along with a washer and a pic of myself that was taken a little while before I actually did that plumbing....
and, by the way, I want to send a BIG thank you to the Techies at STAPLES who helped me through my computer woes this summer - they were very helpful and supportive - and I don't blame any of it on them personally!  Especially now that I have a working computer!
I guess I'll have to find my raincoat and umbrella and get this over with. 
Hope you are safe and warm, whatever your weather is doing!


Love to hear from friends, quilters, fiber folk, and family members.
Leave a note and say hello!
