Love the kokopelli! fabulous!

joe, the class is fabulous.
marie, the kokopellies are metal pieces that fell from a garden hanging. my 6 year old neighbor found them and gave them to me.
thank you both for your comments.

dearie me, this is awfully exciting!
almost jumped out of my seat (and
i had a coffee cup in my hand) seeing
those stitching prints after the dye!

forgive my ignorance . . .
silk is the only fabric you use in the
class?

cristina, yes all different kinds of silk. an amazing process.
