And now for something a bit different...

     A friend of mine, who is incredibly talented, in entering a fiber art fashion show that is emphasizing creative use of materials, recycling, etc sponsored by the Impact Artist Gallery as a fundraiser at the Tonawanda Castle, April 6th. Susan made a bunch of dresses out of something like Tyvek and gave me one to add tangles. I used a very big Sharpie and stayed with one color. The back and front are drawn differently. It was hard to draw on this stuff as it was not smooth. I am glad it is done. It does not fit me as she made them all a size 10- so I can't even try it on and see how it looks not on a hanger.
    I guess we all need to dp something out of our comfort zone once in a while.

Make the dress, I will marker it. Not sharpies, though, they fade away, some other fabric marker.
