Painting Thread

Can I color my own thread?
what if?

I used some found thread at thrift store about the same weight as pearl cotton #5.

I placed a long piece of thread into a recycled veggie tray and poured in some Dyna-Flow liquid textile paint
It Worked!!

if we take the time, we might hear it, the inner most dreams of the self, 
the person we are meant to be.

 The morning tide comes to wash away yesterday and leave a new day to begin.

and when the rain comes, I shall find a book and listen to soft words

wandering thru pages

walking faster 
trying to stay ahead of the chaos
upset, she wanders looking for peace that only she can give herself
Thinking out loud again hearing, as if for the first time, her plans gone awry

Journal pages take me inside

stopping, pause, having some time, I turn toward memories of you.
sometimes it just happens
Looking through some old journals, I pause.

singing in pieces 
falling by my side
I wonder out loud on paper

 I'm selling some unique and funky art journals on Etsy-…/listen-to-the-whispers-of-your-heart…


I'm pleased, surprised and honored to be part of a non-fiber art exhibit with my work Time Spent with Trees, a digital mini-quilt!

Fiber Arts in the Digital Age
Wisconsin Quilt Museum

September 27, 2018 - January 13, 2019
Living in the digital age means living in a time where we are increasingly able to do what was previously considered unimaginable. This era has touched every aspect of life and fiber art has been no exception. To artists designing their work via software to the benefits of digitally printing textiles this exhibit explores various fiber art pieces that only exist due to the age we live in.
