The last few weeks have been a whirlwind it seems.  Two friends came to stay with me a week to work in my studio and recreate garments.  We had such a good time working, chatting, and taking a drive to Big Sur for lunch one day.  Perfect weather and company!

Here are photos of their finished pieces.

Soon after they left two friends, Bob & Tracey, from my hometown arrived for a couple of days.  It sure was good to see them and I wished they could have stayed a little longer but they were on a journey across the country, next stop the Grand Canyon.  It's hard to compete with that!

This weekend was the May Day Faire I've participated in for several years.  It was a beautiful weekend and fun to catch up with old friends.

Now I'm having some down time, sorting and organizing, preparing to finish garments and begin others.  I've collected shoe boxes full of fabric remnants, bits and pieces from all my previous works so I've taken lots of the ribbon lengths, bundled them on small tags to sell in Etsy.  I've just listed a few of these packets so please have a look.

 In the next few days I'll be listing some garments I've upcycled and some scarves and stoles and fabric remnant bundles that Jillian Rose has helped me bundle.

I'm glad your show went well. (Remember, if Tony's plate didn't sell, I want to buy it.) I love your fabric bundles and sure hope you bring some to AU. Don't work to hard (remember to check out the horizon). Miss you!

Thanks for stopping by. Your eco-dyeing are pretty and nature. Just love the subtle color and your altered clothing are great.
