Cyber Fyber

Well I'm back, hubby well again, and myself too. I've got soooo much catching up to do, as i have neglected quite a few things, but managed to pull off a few things this weekend.

First, my Fiber ATC for the Cyber Fyber exhibition, which is being held online at the end of the year, then will be exhibited in a gallery in Colombia, South Carolina. I'm soooo excited. It is all being run by the very talented Susan Lenz. I get to receive one of her beautiful ATC's in return. Oh what fun

Very similar to the skinny fiber card i made, as again i used the brusho ink to dye the patchwork cloth.
I added seed beads, along with some gorgeous teeny flower sequins, which i purchased from Etsy.

Just hope it's good enough, as there are some prestigious fiber artists invited to participate along with us 'amateurs'.

Amongst them, a favourite of mine, Susan Sorrell. I absolutely love her work, and from the 7th October i will be taking an online class of hers making felt pins. It's only a 2 week course, but hopefully next year i'll be able to afford some more of her lengthier classes.
REALLY can't wait.

Here's a link to some of her classes available now.

I've also managed to bead 6 matryoshka dolls, which now need a back sewing on, and stuffed.
HOPEFULLY, i will manage to do some today.

I hope you are all well, and boy, it feels good to be back amongst you all.

Hi Margaret! I'm so glad you're back! Like everyone else, I think your fiber art is good enough to hang with anyones! Great work!

You're right... ATCs are addictive! I will check out the Flickr challenge but I don't feel I'm quite good enough yet! I think I'll lurk in the background a while first!
