of Louisiana meeting. CFAL for short. CFAL is such a diverse collection of people who work in various types of fiber, beads, materials and styles. The show and tells are mostly amazing.
you know the two pieces I have in the show, the Map of rouge Marais Plantation and OIL. I really put the map in as a place holder, we could enter up to two pieces and I wanted to fill the two spots.
I was really surprised at the reception the map had. I was awed by the positive comments both pieces received but more surprised at those about the map. I didn't think it was particularly great. But several people, whose opinions I value, said really great things about it.
I was humbled, because I so envy their work. I guess that tells me I am on the right track.
I am so interested in creating more of both styles, the maps and the industrial structure. I need to make some rusted fabric and try out some painting techniques I have been reading and re-reading and re-re-reading. Sometime, somehow, somewhere you just have to jump in and do it!
I also want to see if my fiber group would be interested in doing an eco-bundle. I need to read up and get some info for them this week. Anybody do any of that before?
Ok. I did use some fabric this week. For the back of the book quilt, and I actually need to claim the front of the book quilt since I did not do that yet. I can do it either this week or next, it really won't matter. What does matter is that I have taken a top that needed quilting and created a back. And that it all is on the frame to be quilted!
Moving forward! Still in the positive numbers but I hope to be into negatives by March!
