My goodness, it’s been almost 2 weeks since my open studio and I’ve been so busy with end of term grading and Christmas preparations I’ve had NO time to blog! I had a great Holiday Open Studio this year! For the most part, I was talking to a couple of people pretty much straight both days! There was only one time where there were more than 4 people here at a time, which allowed me to really spend time talking with everyone; a few of us even stepped outside to try some indigo dyeing!
The house was all spiffed up,
and I turned the dining/music room into a shop for the weekend:
My shibori shade votives were a big hit:
I finished, and hubby was able to frame, 13 indigo dyed, mudcloth inspired glue resist pieces, I’m quite happy with how I was able to display them on this shelving unit (most of the pieces that live there usually are still there, just pushed back a bit):
The folks who came were a combination of old friends and people new to the world of Candied Fabrics, I love being able to catch up with the old friends as well as introduce new ones to the kind of art I make! And plenty of that art is making its way as gifts as well, a true win win!
