ICAD 2018

I love the creativity of Daisy Yellow’s “Index-Card-A-Day” challenge for June and July!  Although I do not follow all the prompts, it is grand to make little pieces to experiment and play. It is fascinating to see what others do with ICAD too—there are a lot of creative, adventurous folks out there!

Follow Your Bliss

I visited Follow Your Bliss on Sunday morning to add recycled silk ties to the fence.  It is encouraging to see so many walkers AND runners use the River Trail for a reflective time along the river.  Unfortunately, I encountered some vandalism–a missing crocheted umbrella and a broken parasol.  In spite of this negative reaction, numerous people have told me that they enjoy the colors, textures, and effervescence of Follow Your Bliss–that is top priority for me!

Making Simple Books at the Maker Studio

I enjoyed a wonderful group of students yesterday afternoon at the East Lansing Public Library’s Maker Studio, East Lansing, Michigan.  We had a grand time exploring 3 different book techniques; folded book from 1 piece of paper, taped spine book with recycled paper, and a tag book.  What a blast–everyone came up with delightful books!  This class was sponsored by All Faith Ministry for disABILITIES and Ms. Cathy Blatnik.  ELPLbooksELPLbooks2ELPLbooks3ELPLbooksChristinaELPLbooksEmilyELPLbooksEmilyDetailELPLbooksOliviaELPLbooksSandra

New Pieces

I finally finished a couple of pieces from my Independent Study class at Quilt & Surface Design Symposium last month.  Actually, the red piece I began last June in Rosalie’s class, “Line and Shape.”  I am happy how these two art quilts turned out!
