Mary Diamond to our meeting on Saturday! What beautiful work she does!!! I had seen a couple of her pieces previously in Lancaster, but I got to hold them and inspect them up close this time!
After the meeting, some of us stayed for a thread painting class. These are the samples of what she teaches. You actually make your own composition using floral print fabric- so no 2 are alike!
|Some of Mary's fluorescent thread collection. I have GOT to get some of these!|
My piece as of the end of class. It's only pinned to the stretcher, since I'm thinking it might need some greens and maybe some beads in those open areas.
A small thing you can do to make a difference to the planet is to recycle those tubes from your toilet paper! Add it up some time to see how many you are throwing away. Just toss them in with the cardboard and cereal boxes. ( NOT in the abitibi paper bins!)
I am grateful for:
The weeds in the garden, which allow me to be in my happy place, watch birds using the water dishes I have set out for them, and enjoying the summer mornings before the sun gets so hot!
A really good book I don't want to put down.
A big job behind me!
Getting away for a day to play with friends.
28 more days until I see Guy!
