Current Threads

I went to see the 'Current Threads' show in Ladysmith yesterday, where fifteen fibre artists from the Vancouver Island Surface Design Association had their work on display - art wear, weavings, quilt art, mixed media and 3D pieces. What great variety and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Speaking of 'current' threads, here are some from the sea.
And another type hanging by the beach:

This huge rusted chain was one of many old metal items I saw, including some railway spikes, which I kept to use for rust dyeing.

It's the last week of 'Patchwork Beasts' and I'm continuing to work on my cat, extending it vertically in preparation for quilting.
