Here is the handstitching I've been doing while I was away from the island - it's grown further since and I'm eager to keep following it's journey. While in Vancouver, I visited Maiwa, where I was fortunate to receive some free dyeing-related supplies, left by a good samaritan who was no longer using them. I also explored the Rokko fabric shop, with its copious choices of lush fabrics, but only chose three half metre pieces, as I'm waiting to hear if I will get into a Nancy Crow workshop in the spring, and that will require alot of fabric shopping. When I came home, I received notification that 'Both And' has been accepted into Coast Collective Gallery's upcoming Peace and Conflict show that begins November 5th. I've also chosen nine of my art quilts to put in a show I will be part of beginning November 8th at Satin Moon Quilt Shop.
