On another note, I did have a shopping mission, too: I was constantly on the lookout for interesting fabric to use for quilting. Here is some of what I found:
|hand-dyed and printed indigo on cotton|
|a rainbow of silks -- the fun part was that the solid colors only cost about $10-$13 per yard|
|hand woven silk in a traditional pattern|
|ikat pattern in silk|
Here is one of the first pieces I made for my new online class with Jane Davies on "Exploring the Self-Portrait." Jet lag does a number on you, alright -- I never noticed that I gave myself a beard, until I loaded this photo onto the class blog.
