Frayed Edges met yesterday. We had such a great day. I've mastered my "moka" and purchased a milk frother so I can make the real deal cappuccino. Kate brought an amazing African peanut soup. Kathy brought Irish soda bread. (Aren't we international!?) And Sarah brought brownies and chocolate chip cookies. Delish.
I shared my in progress rock quilt. Pix soon.
Sarah shared her wonderful "Flying Toast." And her "red quilt" which is on it way to Scotland in an exchange with another fiber artist.
We swapped some yarn, ribbons and other fibers and chatted about general goings on!
Last time we met, we swapped note book covers. I can't believe I didn't photograph them last time. But here they are now. Aren't they fun!? I especially love art that is also utilitarian.
And here's one I made for Sonji.
Here's what it looks like opened up. A 5 x 7 notebook just slides in. Sarah even found 5 x 7 notebooks in a grid and another with blank pages. So much better than LINES.
And here's a close up of the one I made for Sonji.
We also painted paper towels and made some collages ala the workshop article in the recent Cloth Paper Scissors. Mine turned out pretty well. I'm not sure what I'll do with it. I mean, it is still paper towels. Pix of that later too.
Oh and we also decided to do a round robin book project. I think we all agreed to make some kind of "bones" for our personal books and pick a theme. Then we'll pass the project each month and we'll each make pages to fit into the "bones" that each person created. Jazzed up three ring binders basically.
