I have been so focussed on Instagram that my website has been neglected. Find me at @tempestm2017. The summer and fall were busy with textile related activities. My Canada 150 is finished and on my wall. It ended up being a triptych. Maiwa Symposium came and went, wonderful as usual. The workshop I took on thickening natural dyes was so inspiring and practical. I finished a project using one of my samples created there. I am currently doing another using thickened dyes. I entered the fall challenge at Visions Museum in San Diego and my entry "Mingei" sold! Selling will never cease to be a thrill. See Canada 150 and Mingei in my gallery. See the project from my sample using the thickened dyes below. I was amazed at the rich colors produced. My idea came from a vase of tulips. Of course I had to hand and machine embroider.

Congratulations on the sale at Visions. When I've been there, I've wondered if the work ever sold. You prove it does!

I bought your piece "Mingei" at the Visions Museum and am enjoying it every day. I particularly liked the combination of embroidery and beading - as well as my favorite colors. I will share it tomorrow with the Pomegranate Guild so they can appreciate it also. Let me know if you are exhibiting in southern California.
