What I Did This Week-End

No rust dyeing for me this week-end. My YD (Youngest Daughter) and two of her art school friends came here to learn something about fiber art from me. I am thrilled that the next generation is interested in fiber art and welcomed them warmly into my studio and by the end of the week-end into my heart. One of the young women was taking embroidery thread, a hoop and fabric to her figure drawing class as her drawing tools. The next two pictures are examples of what she did in class.
Very cool!!!
But hand stitching takes a very long time. I taught her free-motion machine embroidery and here is what she did with it.
She was talking about taking a sewing machine to class!!! They are students at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design so I am pretty sure she would be allowed use it.
The picture below is another piece by her that she wanted some advice on. I told her to join the Quiltart List and Studio Art Quilts Associates because I don't think she needs ANY advice on how to make fiber art.
