Friday Favorites

I have not been doing much cruising this week but I have found a couple of really exciting posts.

Alsokaisen at Kaizen Journey is taking the Contemporary Woven Boro workshop with Jude Hill.  She has several posts that show off her woven fabrics including her hand dyed ombre, itajime, and shibori fabrics.

Have you heard of One World One Heart?  I had not until this week but it is the fifth and last year of the challenge.  The goal is to meet other bloggers world wide.  You have until Feb 12 to become a participant.  I want to play.  Notice the button on the side of my blog--I am giving away the 5" x 5" quilt I made for the Art for Hunger Show.  Tomorrow I will post my official participating post.
Vicki Welsh at Field Trips in Fiber spent a weekend on batiks.  How lovely that she did that right at the  beginning of the month of batik for And Then We Set It On Fire!  Very nice pictures and she totally different methods than Beth has posted in her tutorial.  Always wonderful to find different ways of doing something isn't it?

Last one I am excited about this week is Madeleine's Artistically Altered post on eco-dyeing with lemons.  I wish I had seen it before I put out my Erosion Bundle.


  1. Talk about synchronicity...cherries and iron vs. lemons and iron!!!! You've gotta love it.

  2. I wish I'd known about the lemons before I put my bundle out, too!


Thanks for reading and please share your thoughts on my work or a link to see your great stuff!
