Amy ice dyed several silk scarves from Dharma, she will use them for gifts when she goes to the family reunion in Missouri. See the previous post on the ice dye Playday at Amy's click here
One of Cheryl's many beautiful pieces of fabric from the ice dyeing.
Cheryl created the background for this art with blue and white sponged onto black base. Then she put white paint on her leaf and other plant materials and made a print. This is for one of her kids classes at the UV Arts Center this summer.
Bead weaving was used by Vi to make this red, white and blue collar for her birthday on July 4.
This vintage 1930's pink blouse with wool embroidery is one of the items Vi is looking to find a good home for, as she is downsizing her home.
Vi is the Queen of beads, as she hand beaded the butterflies onto her sun printed vest.
Ryan experimented with welding two saws together, to make his plasma cutter tree.
Ryan saw a deer head on Pinterest covered in knitting, so he acquired this tattered old head and plans to cover it with quilted fabric. I am curious to see the outcome on this project. He is looking to acquire an elk head too.
Tracy and Ryan have gotten the very cutest baby Rocket the Papillion, to join their others. He slept through the whole meeting. Meredith has been busy working on her whole cloth project, but does not want to share until she makes further progress on it. Barb has been cleaning in prep for the Sisters Quilt-athon, and she has "quilter's butt" and a sore lower back from the repetitive motion.
Barb finally finished her antelope UFO, that she made from one of her photos. To mark the quilting lines, she drew on Solvy and placed it over the antelope and stitched the lines, and washed away the Solvy. Barb is very involved in the Hart Mountain area every year doing census work on the antelopes.
Peggy has some great results from the ice dyeing playday, her silk scarves shimmer with color, and her fabric is so colorful.
Peggy's t-shirt screams fuchsia!
Jana plans on spinning this "Rose Quartz" merino roving for the Tour de Fleece, sponsored by
Jana finished her doggie quilt, she spent a lot of time thread painting her precious pets.
Jana loves thread painting so much and crows are a favorite subject, she thread painted this crow for Clare.
Nancy made a fleece dice mat for her bunco group, the sides are padded bumpers to keep the dice from rolling off the table, it must be a wild group to keep throwing the dice away. She also had a display at the lamb show, and found her vintage pleated plaid Pendelton wool skirt she made in high school.
Clare had lots of fun at the ice dyeing, she did several large pieces of fabric.
Clare also dyed two pieces of cotton lace to match her fabrics.
Compare the finished purple spiral fabric that Clare did, with the photo in the previous post when it was wet and coming off the dye process.
Lorraine dyed a set of cotton napkins with the scalloped edges. Her twisted fabric was done with the Indigo dye color, not a traditional indigo dye bath. My notes also say that Lorraine is also doing a red and green study of radishes, we'll have to wait to see what that means. Sue C. has been doing a collage from a pile of scraps, from a friend from Washington's boxes.
Pat G. finished her ragged patchwork sweatshirt. She used a fabric bundle of "Stonehenge" fabric giving it a very coordinated look.
Pat G. has made a large bed quilt for herself, with Civil War reproduction fabrics. Each block is 8" square and has 57 pieces.
