Lots of Fiber

My life has been filled with fiber these last few days. It's also been filled with intense heat and humidity. Personally, I prefer the fiber.

I coordinated a "play date" for my fiber group, which consists of reserving a room at Blue Bar Quilts and inviting the group. We had a fun and productive day
I'm trying to cut fabric with more precision.
Here Donna is making a gorgeous portrait quilt for her SIL. The talent in this group is just amazing.
Of course it is unbeastly hot because it's always horrible for the Art Fair on the Square.  Fiber art was much more common than in past years. This artist does amazing landscapes with needle-felting:
This panoply of fruit is also done in fabric. Look that those peaches at the bottom. Truly amazing!
A very young vendor upcycles vintage linens into gorgeous clothing:
Normally I would have recorded the artists' names, but it was just too hot to do even that little task.

I've been knitting while watching Stranger Things on Netflix. I am not generally a fan of horror, but this show keeps me riveted. I've been made it to the second color in my Free Your Fade.
I leave for my trip tomorrow. I'll try to post some photos from my phone while I'm gone, and I'll be back to catch up with you at the end of the month.

  3. I just lost two days binge watching the first and second seasons of Strangers Things so that #3 would make sense to me. I can't believe how much I had forgotten.
    I also can't believe all that beautiful work you shared. I thought those fruits were real. I had to go back for a second look.
