Lots of fun was had by all who attended Kay and Sherry's Leaf making workshop on the 18th. She needs thousands of leaves for her fiber art group in Ketchican, who have a grant to make a 17 foot fiber tree for the children's section of the new public library. It will be decorated with book characters, words, flowers and leaves. Sherry has been doing artist in residence programs with fourth graders to make leaves also.
Peggy has finished another Beatles challenge piece, "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." She is a true artist, breaking rules to create a beautiful piece. It is about 16" square (rules 12") and has multiple techniques, photo transfer, Angelina fibers, raw edge applique, and free motion quilting. We will have a great display at the Sutherlin Library, as everyone keeps making additional pieces.
