Chenille tunic/vest

At last I have finished Hannah’s vest. Custom fit for her. Luscious chenille with a hint of glitz. There’s a turquoise one at my Open Studio this weekend , Nov 23,24.



New Work: Silk Scarf

This is work I started doing at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina this summer. I got to study with two inspiring fabric artists who work in surface design. This silk scarf started out white, was resist dyed with one color and came out with four colors! Pretty much fun and often full of surprises…happy accidents.
