inspiration from fiber artists

While I am not a fiber artist myself I am always drawn to that work.  I marvel over the textures, color, forms, and most of all the time and dedication of the makers.  Perhaps I come by this naturally as my mother was a weaver for many years, and is now an avid knitter.  So, I want to share with you fiber artists who I find very inspiring. As I was looking at the butterfly I found yesterday with the colors and patterns on the wings, I thought of these three.

     * Go see the shimmering shibori work of Glennis at ShiboriGirl.
     She makes stunning colors and patterns in her work on silk.
     It is luxurious and she is so skilled at what she does.

     * Jude at Spiritcloth makes beautiful quilts with
     fabulous embroidery and applique work.

     * Helle at Gooseflesh is a fiber artist who crochets amazing sculptures
     from pre-loved wool and plastic bag yarn. Go see her recent post
     on the coral garden she's making.

These three women are so talented and creative, I enjoy watching their work bloom! I hope you'll go see for yourself!
