Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites are late this week but it has been one of those weeks.  Little brain power left at the end of the day to cruise websites.  Finally, I think I have everything in place for the students to start school on Monday.  Now my brain can think about other stuff.

What do you think of this heart for Friday Favorites?  To me it looks like some guy flexing his muscles trying to impress his lady love.  Are you impressed?

First blog that tickled my fancy this week was Arlee's bondaged wrapped banana.  Arlee is having so much fun wrapping cloth around EVERYTHING to see what will happen that she is really drawing me into the ecodyeing world.

Vicki is making journal quilts.  Not altogether sure what journal quilts are.  I have seen the term alot but still not sure.  Anyway, this particular quilt is made up from scraps from other projects--my favorite kind of quilt.  I do look forward to see what else she will make. But then, I love looking her her homedyed fabric also.

Judy has also been playing with dyes and gives a good show and tell about dyes with soy wax from the Jane Dunnewold and Lisa Kerpoe video.  I have not tried the method yet but it is on my list.

Since I am also a lazy gal, I am going to send you over to Lazy Gal Quilting for some exciting links she has posted.  I haven't watched it yet but I want to see the video about making quilts from saris.  I have a couple of old saris destined for quilts in one way or another.

Don't forget to check out the shibori on And Then We Set It On Fire!  The month has only started but already several of the artists have experimented and posted their process and results.  Last night I bought some new PVC pipe and will be playing over the weekend. Check in there next week to see my results.

While I am sure that there are 1000s of other wonderful things out there to see, my head is tired.  Send me some good links if you find them. 


  1. Arlee is pulling me into this magical process...I love her determination and am quite pleased with her progress. Have a great weekend and enjoy a calm quiet moment. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
