I have been visiting my sister in Memphis and my son and his family in Arkansas. I haven't had a chance to blog or do much fiber work while I've been gone. (I did get to work a LITTLE bit on my newest piece while I was at my sister's, but I don't have pictures yet.)
I do have something else I'd like to share with you. My friend Daren Redman was recently interviewed about her fiber art. Check out her interview here. I had a chance to see her beautiful fabric in person; it is fabulous. She was kind enough to allow me to use a lot of her hand dyes for my current piece. I am SO pleased with how it is looking. Daren's interview is very well done and doesn't take too long to watch. I think you will really enjoy it.
My daughter took some good pictures while we were at June Beth's for her 3rd birthday party. Here is a little collage of pictures from JB's birthday. My son, Ryan, rents a big water slide for the kids. That was REALLY a good thing this year since the temperature was 100 degrees that day! Emily (my daughter) and Cade (my 9 year old grandson) went down with us for the big birthday party. June Beth (my 3 year old granddaughter) and Cade are big buddies. I'm glad they had a chance to play together.
(That's Bianca (my 11 year old granddaughter) in the lower left corner.)
There is never enough time with family. I remember (back in the day) my great-grandmother crying when we arrived at her house (she lived in another state) and crying when we left her house. I never understood that when I was little. Now I do.
I have Stitch & Bitch tonight. Hopefully, I'll have some pictures of their UFO Challenge to share with you.
