Frayed Edges March 2012

We had a great Frayed Edges meeting today! This one's for you Deborah.

I provided fabric and pigma 08 markers (sorry no microns to be had) for Kate and Sarah. And then we watched the tutorial she made, which I'm having one heck of a time linking to, so for anyone who's interested just go to Deborahs blog and scroll down a couple of posts and it's there.

Yes, those are your hands on my computer screen. We watched. Then dove in. Things we learned:

1. Following your advice, we worked loosely, keeping those wrists flexible.
2. Don't try to ask fellow workers questions that require a thoughtful answer while trying to write. No one can do this and respond at the same time. At least Kate can't.
3. If you can't think what to write try Music lyrics. Mary Poppins. Chim chim-in-ee works well. Happy Birthday would work too, everyone knows those lyrics though there's not much to them.

When the writing was done, we added a bit of color. Now to use this great new fabric in some sort of project.

Oh I just love it! I almost feel like I was there. Miss you all.

Wasn't that video wonderful? I have my micron pen here in front of me. I need to recite a poem or something and get going on covering some fabric with script. I tried it on my last 12 by 20 piece on batik and it didn't work very well. My writing was too small.

Have the Frayed Edges thought of doing a Skype (spelling) meeting. Sort of a virtual visit with Deborah.

Now I am going to enlarge the pictures of your new kitchen and look at your "stuff".
