These two books just arrived and I am having fun looking at all the wonderful fiberart from all over the world. In the "1000 Artisan Textiles" book it's fun to recognize some of the artists like Elizabeth Armstrong from Australia, and fellow Artfest teachers, Judy Wise, Tracie Lyn and Marilyn Huskamp, Sas Colby, and bloggers who work I admire as well. I think my favorite section is the felting...makes me want to get my hands wet and get rolling!
I barely got to peek at the first book but it looks like it has lots of interesting fiber art techniques to explore.
And for my evening reading I went and purchased this book from one of my favorite authors, Alexander McCall Smith. This is the latest in his series, the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency.
I got a little more stitching done on this piece. Still figuring out how to finish the edges on it.
Sent in two workshop proposals to ARtfest yesterday, will have to wait and see what happens.
