Flat Earth

This is the start of a new silk piece I'm making for the Quilts on the Wall annual challenge; the theme is maps.   Using fabrics from all over the globe, and the square as a repeating  graphic, I have decided to call it Flat Earth, maybe Flat Earth Theory, or maybe The Earth Really is Flat.  Not sure which is catchier.  Then again, maybe just Walkabout.

Palos Verdes Art Center Fiber Forward

A whole team of folks have been working like mad people to get our shows up and running for the Friday opening.  I'm not posting pix yet as I want to wait till the signage is up.  But the show is hung and there are crowds expected for the grand event from 6-8 on the 18th.  (Wine and munchies and maybe some music, too.)  Good news: my workshop on  dye transfer to silk scarves is BULGING with eager students - 16 already signed up and no one has even seen the show yet!!  There's a great preview article about the event in the Peninsula News.       http://www.pvnews.com/articles/2013/01/10/arts_and_entertainment/a_e1.txt

And, for a laugh .  .  .
