I Surrender...


Life by Chocolate
Artist: Mark La Polla Greenville Arms Inn, New York

O Yeah, Baby!
And now back to the fabric art.
We (not the imperial we) are working in neutrals. Stacey has made a grouping of low contrast strip fused fabrics and just placed them on the wall to get them off her table. Her artistic sensibilites are so great that they appear to be naturally occuring complete compositions.




I think these are elegant sophisticated designs, but I have yet to convince Stacey. I promised her that overnight it would all become clear to her and she would see them in a new light this morning.




Joanie continues to crank out wonderful pieces. These three are all hers.


Elfie made this fantastic leaf piece early in the week and is working on more great things, TBA.



She even got in some hand stitchery.


Laura has an elegant line and a scrumptious color sense. Can one eat fabric?

She made this small piece (about 8x10") and it is just what I think of as a trigger for a really whamo series. I plan to steal it right from under her nose. I'll call it an homage or inspired by, but we all know it is highway robbery of the artistic kind.

(those of you really worried about copying---I KID!)

I have my OWN SERIES GOING.

I began this late Wednesday afternoon and finished it Thursday morning. It's about 30 x 40". This detail shows the block element that I chose as my constant. The strange colors excited me.

I felt satisfied that I had cracked the nut. I have used colors that are totally foreign to me and thought I arrived at series nirvana. So I cleaned up all my scraps, rolled up my fabric and cleared my table. Sigh. Then I decided to work in nuetrals.

Apparently I need to read the definition again.

  2. Joanie was evidently predictiing the weather we experienced last night. I am sure the lightning coming from the clouds was just that shade of orange.
    Yummy, all of it! Food and fabric. Just pure bliss.

  5. It's ALL amazing. Oh, and Mel, we will now call those "Melody Neutrals."

    What a wonderful time. A friend of mine, Barbara Stroup, will be attending a workshop there in the very near future. I am so VERY jealous. The consolation is....she will have to work very hard to work off all that delicious food before we meet at Ferry Beach!!

  8. Amy, isn't perspective wonderful? I had just been reading about the storms that had ripped through Iowa and remembering the storms that came through here around 2 a.m. so lightening was on my mind. I do see trees now.

  9. Melody,

    Your series' central block element reminds me of Sonji's bundles!

  15. I cannot even believe the talent in your class. You must be in hog heaven (not to mention the food)!!! Did I mention that I lost 2 lbs? It is probably not the right time to bring this up, eh?
