How about a little color this time?

Ok, so I'm starting to like yellow more & more. These were for a Metals ATC swap for Fiber ATC. They're a batik yellow fabric, with machine stitching, hand-dyed cheesecloth, lumiere metallic paint & metal clips. Thought I would make something to nice & bright, since the weather here in Seattle seems to be pretty much cloudy & drizzling ALL of the time & the sun maybe thinks about showing itself once every 2-3 weeks.

We woke up to 24 degree weather this morning. You know it's cold outside when you & your husband wake up to 2 cats & 1 dog all under the covers with you. It's one of those mornings where you'd rather just stay in bed all day than go out into the cold & go to work. Apparently, we're supposed to keep this cold weather snap for the next 3-4 days or so. I know many of you are probably reading this & thinking you have weather temps colder than this, but for Seattle, that's pretty cold. When we moved to Seattle a little over 10 years ago, the summers stayed around mid 70's & the winters averaged around the lower 40's. (it was wonderful) Now the summers are getting hotter (thank goodness for AC) & the winters are getting colder. If I wanted these temps, I would have stayed back in Iowa. I'm am SO ready for summer & the SUN!!

Very nice pieces Tracy I like them. I can sympathize with you on the weather, sort of. I had to brush about six inches off the car this morning on the way to an appt.

The bright yellow is so cheery and the spirals wonderful. I didn't have time to participate in this swap, but seeing your cards makes me wish I had.
