Friday Favorites

 I have been thinking about making a mobile with things I have found on my beach walks.  I really like the design found in this blog for creating the frame of the mobile.

I adore it when an artist takes a class and blogs about it!  Penny is taking a class with Jane and has a couple of  posts that are exciting. Both are related to using shapes. The first is drawing the shapes and the second is fabric shapes.  I do hope that Penny posts more!

Have you found this challenge group yet?  Fiberactions is 12 artists who produce a new 16" x 20" quilt every other month based on a theme. This time the theme is Structure.  Last time it was Texture and there were some really interesting quilts.  Take a look at Sunset in the City.  It is a whole cloth quilt. Would you guess it?  But I think that Canyon Revisited is my favorite.  Are you surprised?  It is wonky and has hand stitching!

A thermofax screen give-away!  You  have till October 15 to sign up for it. C&T Publishing also has a give away.  You need to enter by Sunday, October 9, to have a chance to win some architecture inspired artwork.

Lots of dyeing results this week. This one is from Deb who used oatmeal, rice, etc as resists.  This one is from Constance Rose who used blackberries.
