I'm not sure why, but I feel the desire to jump into a hexi project. I was even thinking about 100 days (or more). I like how the blocks fit together, they are easy to create and allow for hand stitching and beadwork. Maybe this is the start of the mosaic project I want to work on!

I have been participating in the month long gelli plate challenge hosted by Birgit Koopsen on IG. What a fun daily challenge! The challenge for yesterday was "lace".

This week's Wanderlust was especially fun to work on. Easy, on hand materials, and lots of room for personally creativity. I didn't try to reinvent the wheel on this lesson - just enjoyed the process. I can see that her method is one I will use again and again, (maybe with dyes next time!)

Inspired by a vase of flowers on the table at my book signing event at Cordova Library last week. I will be teaching a workshop in July on using thickened dyes to create a "painting" and have begun the process of samples for the students to view. Unfortunately, with kids, it seems that copying is often the case. We'll see...

I've returned from a wonderful week with my son. A day trip to St. Louis was just what we needed to get away from the cold weather.
We found a lovely spot for lunch, "Balkan Treat Box". I strongly recommend!

During the past week I've worked on little studies in orange. I'm not overly fond of orange, but found that the complementary combination of orange and blue was actually to my liking. Now I am in search of a famous painting that uses orange. Having run out of time (it's beautiful outdoors and I want some sunshine!), I will explore more orange tomorrow.
