Crazy woman: island girl

Last of my crazy women that I worked on during my cruise:

What am I going to do with all these crazy women?  For starters, I think a second go round of embellishing!

Thread painting class

I learned a lot at Friday's thread painting class.  It was also fun to use fabric that I had dyed in last week's dye thickener class.

100 Day Project / simple doodle turned stencil

We are at the half way point of the 100 Day Project.  My heart is not in it, but I am determined to complete 100 days of simple patterns. 

It's pretty obvious that I didn't spend much time on this drawing:

I cut a stencil and used thickened dyes on an old dish towel:

I think it will go to my free motion stitching class on Friday, and I may even end up liking it!

Viking Ship Museum map / Oslo, Norway

My sister and I went to Oslo last fall with the intention of traveling north to the town our ancestors were from.  Never made it there....  Too many wonderful things to see in Oslo, and we ran out of time. 

We both enjoyed the Viking Ship Museum.  My sister as a scientist and I as a librarian and artist.  We travel well together finding wonderful memories every time we venture out on a new adventure. 

To document this fabulous museum, I created a map of it for this week's Studio52 map:

Hunting with my camera

I enjoy a good hunt while traveling. There are so many things to see and keeping the camera close at hand may make me look like a tourist, but I also come home with many memories and tons of inspiration.
