    Sorry these are all so large. I'm going to try to edit these to get them smaller.

    WOW Judy, those scarves are to "dye" for! I'd love to hear how you accomplished that flowing look on the yellow/orange one!

    I hanged it from the top of my wheelchair ramp, and from the top of the ramp, I squirted dyes onto the bamboo scarf. I used various colors centered around the golden yellow.

    goldendog55 you've have some gorgeous goodies there and I hope you sell them all quickly. (More $$ for more fabric for more experiments, right?)

    Here I have been told we will be getting some hemp fabric available soon. The laws here are more sensible than elsewhere and since it is has the feel of cotton but wears even better I am hoping it will make a good tourist item. I would like to dye, paint and generally play with yards of it.

    (VBG) Since it is a different subspecies of plant for fabric and obviously unsmoke-able I am wondering what if anything customs would do at the US border. Should be interesting for the brave. Since it wouldn't smell like dope I doubt if it would even register for the dope sniffing dogs...but one never knows.

    When it shows up rest assured there will be full reports and photos to match.

    Thanks for the info Judy! I'm guessing the slanted surface is the key here and will have to mess around with that when the weather's warm enough to get out the dyes again.

    That was not actually not slanted, it is entirely vertically. Though, that does give me ideas!

    It just dawned on me that I am doing something for December's challenge after all. I am in the process of making a quilt and it is a gift, just not a Christmas gift. It is a wedding gift for a friend getting married in January. It is all in yellows and purples and lavenders. Since it is a queen size quilt, not my usual art quilt offering. I will post some picture tomorrow of some of the completed blocks.

    Hi all,

    I know I've been MIA for quite awhile, but I've been following along and enjoying all of your work immensely! I've been busy with my day-job and also working on a lot of outdoor projects while the weather has been so nice here. We've had an unusually nice fall, and it's only just starting to feel a little like winter outside now.

    Anyway, I have managed to find a little time to work on some gift items and I think they may fit nicely into the December challenge. I've been making eyeglass and smartphone cases and have been adding some depth to the FMQing usingShiva Paintstiks for shading and highlighting.

    Here are a few pics...

    how beautiful!! i am in the process of making christmas stockings. not sure they are art items but i'm having fun designing them as i go. it is what everyone wanted this year. that and boom blocks are keeping me busy and trying not to go crazy as time runs out! once i started quilting the list of "i wants" became quite long! too many quilts to make and not enough time and energy to do them all. i have decided not to buy any more fabric in 2013. i have too many kits and groups of fabrics ready to be made into quilts!! in fact, i'm back to it now.

    nancia~I'll bet those Christmas stockings you are working on will be art items when you are finished with them! I'd love to see pics. I've been mulling over some stocking ideas myself, but time is so short now that I believe they'll have to wait until next year. I did 4 large quilts for family last Christmas, so this year I have focused on other projects, mostly playing with new techniques and working to expand my skill set.

    Yay! Sounds like a contender to me. Anything you are lavishing artistic time and attention on, especially if you are bravely trying some new things, qualifies!

    Can't wait for the photos!!

    thanks, suzie! they are all pieced on a foundation , then i added a piece of heavy flannel, and quilted. i added a back , and now i'm working on the linings. technically they are reversible. i have only one quilted side per stocking, they need to be sent before the 25th so time crunch!! do you think it's too presumptive to send a 4th one to each family of three? hate to seem pushy! haven't finished, but will post pics as-is. i have almost convinced myself not to put the white cuff on them. what do you think? opinions, please,people!

    Well you could always gracefully excuse yourself by saying you meant it for any guest, dog, cat, bird or other new addition that is around for the next few Xmases. I mean after all, really, if there were any possible grandkids around the corner you would be making them serious super special works of art to be used! OTOH twixt you, me, and the wall....... subtle suggestion is always in order!

    Can't wait for the photos. I am quilting my piece tomorrow. I am still unsure of how much stitching to put on it but I am going to plunge in anyway as it sure isn't getting any closer to done on the wall where it is. Photos to follow later PM Thurs I hope.

    Have been very busy with quilts for Sandy victims, which will be personally delivered to Krystyna (doll quilt swaps).
    We have quite a pile along with household items and toys. See my thread under "Requests". I pestered my Bee and they responded with a great quilter's CARE package. Maybe January's theme should be "a long winter's nap".

    thank you so much for helping krystyna and friends. it's a wonderful thing you and the others are doing! i know grann of 6 is keeping very busy and doing beautiful work!
    as for the long winter's nap, i could certainly go with that theme! i think i will be keeping a low profile in january! but for now the push is on!
    before i forget-- the camera is being charged. then i will take pictures and post. i just had a great idea for the cuff--oooo, gotta write it down before i forget it! i have some-timers' very badly!

    Hi All,
    How about if you turn your experiments into mug rugs? I have the idea of collecting 600 for the kids in Newtown for Valentine's day. I think these kids will get plenty of toys, etc but by mid Feb a small gift of love & support would be nice.
    Use up your kid friendly scraps & keep giving. Send to me- I'll keeo count- or straight to Newtown. Happy New Year! Dotty

    i have loaded pictures of a few of the stockings i made for my kids. here's hoping i can attach them. fingers crossed!! i'm not sure these classify as art, but they were great fun to design and make. each is reversible with a fabric cuff ( as opposed to the fur. evidently i forgot to take pictures of that.) keeps me busy and off the streets, lol.

    Well, I am finally going to post the pictures I promised a while back of my wedding quilt. This bride is into yellow and purple hence the colors. I used some new techniques to do the piecing so things went together faster than usual which was nice. This was a lovely quilt to work on. It should now be at the quilters being quilted. I don't know that part is out of my hands, I am just waiting to get it back to bind it in time for the wedding reception. jb

    Obviously my pictures didn't take will try again.
