A day of tactile pleasure

Greetings from beautiful Charlotte North Carolina! I’m on a buying trip this week and experienced the pure joy of spending the entire day at Mary Jo’s Cloth Store yesterday. Mary Jo’s is so large that it takes a whole day to work your way through all the fabrics. I spent most of my time looking at (and buying) silks – silk organza, silk charmeuse, china silk, and hand dyed silks. So many projects run through my mind as I touch these luxurious fabrics.

Before I left, I was working on a project with the April/May Project Spectrum colors of pink, yellow, and green.  I should have the tutorial posted in the next few days. I hope you are all busy with new and wonderful fiber art projects of your own.

I want to thank you again for all your kind, encouraging,and inspiring comments. They each mean so much to me and definitely energize my work in the studio.   As much as I love shopping for new fabrics and fibers, I can’t wait to get home and back to work.
