Meeting new artists is the best. I don't mean talking about techniques, so much as just the sharing of what each other does, and how they got to be creating in the way that they do. Recently I had the pleasure of spending time in Anne Morrel Robinson's studio on Cape Breton Island. I don't have my photos sorted yet but you can click here to see Anne's Kingross Quilts website. Also if you 'like' her facebook page, you can see a photo of us in her shop. I promise to take a photo of the felted brooch I got there and post it. Absolutely lovely.
Meanwhile here are some photos of the 'mug rugs' I did this summer using the hand painted fabrics I created after taking a Oriental painting class from Linda Lashbrook. That reminds me I must also post a picture of a hooked mini rug I bought on my trip to the Maritimes with pussy willows on it, created in the Acadian tradition, by a 93 year old artisan. How inspiring is that.
This mug rug has gone to a new home.
