Silkscreen and dyeing fabric, ME????

I had simply THE BEST TIME EVER in Rhode Island last weekend with my Artgirlz (including the REAL and WORLD FAMOUS Artgirlz Tracy, Linda and Alison).

We dyed fabric, learned to silkscreen, carved our own rubber stamps from our own hand drawn designs!! And then we sewed. Okay, I didn't think I was much of a sewer, but....WHO KNEW? Look at that face, I painted it on then stitched it using some crazy free motion foot thingy. Wowzers. I am so proud of myself I can barely stand it.

close up of the face ...just look at that stitching!
