Hand Dyed Fabrics from a Class with Frieda Anderson

Here are the fabrics I hand dyed in a class with Frieda Anderson.  This class was offered by Quilting Adventures in Texas.  We stayed at the beautiful Jordan Ranch in Schuelenburg Texas.  I also dyed silk ribbons and a rayon Jacket.  What fun and learned a lot.  Frieda is a great teacher.

Catch Up Time

I have just finished up a class with Lisa Call.   The class is Working in a Series.  OMG what a great teacher and a wonderful class.  Lisa is nurturing, very giving of her knowledge, and very inspirational.  The class format is wonderful, the critiques are informative, the emails are so full of informations and it is a treat to be introduced to 3 artists per week. Here are my projects for my series "Town Square"
A week ago  I went with 2 friends to Jordan Ranch in Texas and took a Hand Dyeing class with Frieda Anderson.  I thin I hand dyed around 33-35 yards of fabric.  We also did some discharging. Frieda is a wonderful teacher. Now maybe I will have a little more control over my colors, and hopefully produce more vibrant colors.  Here is one of the discharged fabrics I worked on.  I will post more pics of the fabric later.

We also went to Cleveland Ohio to see our daughter graduate from Cleveland State University.  We are so proud of Michelle, she graduated with top honors and was one of three highlighted students.
