Yellow and Turquoise 2-color Block

Fiber Art Junkies monthly meeting was last night, so I can now post my latest block in our 2-color challenge.  Last month’s meeting we drew the colors yellow and turquoise/teal from the bag.  I was a little leery of this combination, but I made it work.  

After some thought I decided to make the block from yellow fabrics. It appears that my photo of the bare block has disappeared though. hm…

Since the block was all yellow fabrics, that means my stitching is all in the turquoise/teal. 

This is a color combo I don’t think I would have ever put together on my own, but I’m pretty happy with how my block turned out. 

Our next colors are: 

This one should be good! 

Fiber Art Junkies – Gallery 194 Show

Warning: Photo intensive post ahead!

Our gallery show officially ends tomorrow up at Gallery 194. Since I still cannot get the pictures off of my camera, I ran up there today and took a bunch of photos with my phone so that I could finally share them with you.

Some of the photos may be a little fuzzy and I apologize for that in advance. I’m feeling a little shaky today for some reason.

We had eight of our members exhibiting their fiber art in the show, and we filled not only the main gallery but both emerging artist hallways as well! I think Jim, the gallery manager (I think), said we had over 150 different pieces in the exhibit!

“Enough typing, Shell…where’s the photos??”

Okay, okay…here they are! ¬†Once I figure out where WordPress hid the add media button. Oh, there it is!
