Hello there, fiber folks! How’s it going? Mike and I are camping out in our house at the moment. We are in the midst of doing some house selling and some house buying, but we are hung up waiting on some paperwork. All of our stuff is in storage, but we have clothes and camp chairs and an air mattress. I don’t know when we will actually get to move, but soon, I hope. Soon.
I have been crocheting away while sitting in my camp chair and watching game shows from the 1970s on the laptop. One of the pieces I finished before we started all of this packing and moving business is on display at the Anita B. Gorman Conservation Discovery Center right now. Our group of Kansas City Fiber Artists is putting on “The Nature of Fiber,” a collection of works relating to fiber and nature. I saw a few of the pieces when I dropped off my work and it is a cool exhibit!
I used yarns I dyed with marigolds in the fall to create my piece. This is one is called “Marigold Merriment:”
You can see my piece and the work of 14 other artists through January and February:
