RAFA May 2012 Meeting

May 9, 2012

I have been having lots of fun going to lots of meetings, and taking lots of pictures, but haven’t been sharing them with all of you.  The reason?  My desktop computer died, and that is the computer I used to edit photos.  I lost all sorts of programs and am now forced to use my laptop for everything.  I went from Windows 98 – yes my desktop was very old – to Windows 7, and everything is in different locations.  Always eager to learn anything and everything fiberly,  I’ve been dreading learning my way around Windows 7 and installing new software.

Tonight I finally got a grip, and started the process.  So here are some pictures from the May meeting of Rochester Area Fiber Artists:

That scarf was felted by Caris in a gridded design.  I’ve never seen anything like that before, and it was gorgeous.  She was lucky she walked out of the meeting with it, because several of us were interested in purchasing it.

Terryn is a new member, and she showed a couple of Zen inspired felted pieces.  I particuarly liked this one:

Another felted piece is this curvy, organic purse:

Margaret has been experimenting with small zentangle designs using cloth and thread instead of pen and paper, and this was her latest creation:

And last, but by no means least is some breath- taking applique by Mary:

We’re talking hand applique here people, and here’s a close up:

I am in awe of her skill.
