Had great fun with my Connections Fibre Artists group at the annual Christmas party at our house. We celebrate the season with planning future shows, excellent food, a lively gift exchange including the annual "booby prize" surprise, lots of laughter and of course textile art. Shown is the fabulous SAQA trunk show! We are very blessed!

During four magical days in early October 2017 the Connections group met for our annual retreat. The weather gods smiled, food was abundant, wine flowed and sewing needles and machines hummed along. We dyed, rusted, cut, painted, stitched, listened and talked (lots of talking), and watched our friends with awe as their marvellous work unfolded in front of our eyes - all of it so uniquely beautiful! Bethany Garner led us on an inspired indigo journey, we had Happy Hour and snacks, we went for long rambles on the country paths, we took a zillion photos and we laughed. Connections happened in the very truest meaning of the word. The last 15 photos are the work of Bev White, our unofficial and excellent photographer. Thank you my friends. I had a blast and I so appreciate your companionship on this artist's path. xo

Just some of our snacks in case we wasted away between meals...
