1st post - patti
Hello Art-a-Day artists,
On January1st and 2nd I completed weaving the shoulder strap, (8 cedar strands braided) of my cedar clam basket. The challenge was to use 4 crayons, blindly chosen, to work in your medium, I chose basketry.
On the 3rd of January, I took 6 completed projects to Allied Arts for entry into the Desert Fiber Arts Show. The pieces of art were; one bookarts project titled Water Drum, one tapestry titled Storm and Sunset and four baskets, my favorite being a rustic picnic basket with lids.
January 4th I began to weave a small backpack basket that my daughter will be using for reinactment of a war. On the 5th, I was learning the ins and outs of waxed linen medallions and began a small piece. Today, I had my first lesson on downloading a picture onto this post!
I am also collecting ideas for my next tapestry.
Wish me luck, Patti
