This is Barb - she moved to Florida yesterday. I am sad.
This is Chris ( Yes we have two people named Chris/Kris)
One of our members was sick so we all worked a little harder and faster and made her snowflakes for her. So we each finished two for ourselves and jointly finished two for her.
This is Chris and Barb ( Yes, we have two Barbs, too.)
Finished Flakes -- They hang on fishing line
Yesterday I went to a Silk Scarf Painting Class with 2 friends from my stitching group, Fiber Friends. This was my second time to try this and I had forgotten more than I remembered, so it was more like my first time. The lady who teaches this class comes to my church and she has made almost 1500 scarves. Each one is more beautiful than the next. There were only 4 students, so we got lots of help and had lots of time to gab while we contemplated our next step or waited for our scarves to dry. We received a blank white scarf and then pinned them onto a frame. We each chose the colors of paint we liked. In the first photo you can see swatches in the back left corner. In the center background, you can see lots of finished scarves that Sandy, the teacher made.
Here are my friends with their nearly finished scarves.
Vicky made colorful flowers in purple and pink and a grey and pink background.
Barb used Christmas colors in red, green and gold in a diagonal color wash.
Sandy, the teacher is in the background.
Here is a better view of Vicky's scarf and the frame.
I forgot to take a photo of mine. Sandy forgot to bring a bottle of fixative which is part of the finishing step to fix the color in the silk. So she took all of scarves home to wash and dry and then she is mailing them to us. What great service! I'll post a picture of mine next week.
