Update on work in the studio.
It's a fused fiber piece, started out with the title Around the Block but the more I worked on it I realized that Hundertwasser was influencing my style again. :)
Not the losing weight kind, although we, Chris, the two Linda's and myself got very involved in what we were doing. The first exercise was to use square and rectangle shapes on a 12 1/2 inch piece of black fabric. We had fused solid colors and lots of felt to work with.
You can't really see it on this piece but the sky blue fabric is really one piece with a black felt piece with square cut out laid on top of it. Then the other colors were added. There is quite a bit of machine stitching added around some of the squares.
The three and a half hours flew by while we cut and pressed like little kids. It was pure play with some interesting examples completed. You get four people together and give them simple directions and you get 12 different finished projects.
I'll post pictures of their finished work from our next meeting on the 2nd.
These 12 will be hung on some gorgeous bright colored felt that Linda and I picked out the other day.
They will be the start of our collection for the 2013 Senior Center Show.
:)Bea, who hopes you had a creative day.
