Mark Making with Nature Special Extended

Mark Making with Nature Special Extended
August 24th!!!

I went to sleep last night thinking that something wasn't quite right with yesterdays sale, but couldn't put my finger on it until this morning when I realized that the service I used for the digital downloads hadn't contacted me. Response to the book special was overwhelming, so why wasn't I hearing from my digital service? One good nights sleep and I realized that I had used the wrong buttons for the special, techie I am NOT, and yesterdays snaffu proved that one to me!

So I am extending the sale until Wednesday, why Wednesday you ask? I have a LOT of garlic dill pickle relish to put up and a zine to finish and don't want to mess with the buttons again, now that they are correct. If you should pay for your books and you do not recieve an email from me for the digital download instructions please contact me at For everyone else that bought a copy yesterday, but didn't recieve a digital download I am popping it into the mail for you!

The buttons have all been fixed and should take you directly to a PayPal invoice after which you should promptly recieve an email with download instructions.

WIP - Hot Flash

Hot Flash in progress.
Silk Crinkle Crepe, wool batting, cotton backing.
Natural Dyes, Compost dyed.
Machine stitched so far.

Added additional stitching to the surface this afternoon after much encouraging from Brenda to take the plunge and use some bold colors in it, and I am think fuschia and firey bronze gold.  It's definately starting to pop now, but, there's aways a but isn't there, I have tons more stitching to do and the silk crinkle crepe is a major pain to machine stitch.

I missed the deadline for the QAQ/Schweinfurth I thought it was a post mark deadline but alas it's a recieved by date.  One of these years I'll get the application actually sent off.

8 x 11 inches - ish

Now for some more hand stitching.  Natural dyed and compost dyed fabrics cotton and silk.  Natural dyed silk eyelash yarn.  I found it hiding in a pile of UFO's (unfinished objects)  I started it several years ago, added the dark velvet circles for the bins and silo's this evening.

Yes this is the same piece of cloth I've been photographing the the past several years now, it's still sitting outside on the indigo vat waiting for something... what I don't know yet.

Crow Card No. 2

I think I may have made it even more confusing by using a varigated thread, two different varigated colors actually, to do the stitching.  And then I remembered that the Crow is a Trickster...

Hand stitching and some possible beading will ensue with this piece tomorrow.
