Beautiful Results!

rusted silk dupioni.  She looks like a

It's been almost three years but finally Friday night at the Spark and Flame reception at Edwardsville Arts Center I got to see what happened with a piece of rusted yardage I made in 2011. A year or two after the fabric was rusted I donated it to the Friends of Art Auction at SIUE. As a board member of FOA, I was also soliciting work for the auction, so I approached Lillian Bates who owns By Design Boutique in Alton, IL to partner with me by promising to create something with my fabric for the high bidder --who turned out to be Laura Strand.

Click here to see how this piece began, and here for the results of the rusting.
