This year, the Northern Ontario Fibre Artists met for a week-end retreat at Marie's cottage. This our third annual fun week-end.
|Kit, Silvia, Marnie, Terry, Marie, Karen. |
Jane was unable to attend this year.
As usual, we experimented with several techniques, ate great food and had lots of laughs.
Here's a few pictures from the week-end.
The Stained & Scorched article by Victoria Gertenbach in a recent Quilting Arts magazine was the inspiration for these pieces. The cotton was "painted" with lemon juice and ironed with hot iron. Red wine works as well and gives a pinkish tinge. This was really fun to play with and see what would happen.

We also experimented with stencils.

Next the paints came out and we mono printed, scraped, and stamped on fabric as well as water colour papers.

And of course, we had to have a pj picture.
Yummy dessert, a glass of wine and good company. It does not get any better!
