Ideas

This morning I'm off to Florida where I'll be teaching a hand-dyed fabric class on Tuesday. I'll be staying with my good friend, Ann, who has been an avid quilter for many years and owned a quilt shop in Jackson, MS. When we moved to Florida in 2000, Ann asked me to get together to sew that first week, and we sewed together every week for almost seven years! You know that I'm happy to be visiting with her.




I've had my eye on some historic landmarks around Athens lately. We have some truly beautiful old buildings and structures that I plan to photograph, manipulate in Paint Shop Pro Photo, and then print onto fabric. This old cotton warehouse (I believe that's what it is) is right next to the railroad tracks on the north side of downtown. Isn't it wonderful? This is not the best photo, but I can't show you my other ones until they're in a piece.
Drat! The covered wagon I planned to photograph was moved a couple of weeks ago...but I think I might know where it is. I'm on the lookout...

Dear Anita;

I have the last wash with syn. left to do with my fabrics which I dyed in your class yesterday. I love them! A few white/light spots, but they are still so vibrant. Thank you so much for your time and effort.
