I managed to find enough sunlight on my patio in August to do some sunprints but didn't take many photos of the process because I had to move quickly before the sun moved. I wanted to use the prints for cards so I cut my fabric into pieces approx 5 x 7 and did each one separately. The bottom right was done on satin with setacolours and it worked like a charm.
Then I ironed each on to fusible interfacing and placed it in a window card. The one in the second row right was painted without sunprinting.
Then I made tree and leaf stamps and stamped a few on painted satin.
I decided to make a few pendants using the painted stamped satin fabric - skies to go with my landscape/seascape jewelry.

|My first page of designs - some worked some did not|
I made a second sheet of designs and did some matching earrings as well. Here are some of the finished pendants.
|Finshed pendants - I love the sea urchins!|
|These are done with bottlecap settings - some photo transfer, some painted, some layered landscape|
I finished a mini embroidery of Tenerife mountain and I am working on a tiny embroidery of brown eyed susans from a photo in my backyard - and I took a few days off to accompany some friends to Prince Edward County - wine tasting, hiking the dunes, swimming and lots of great food!

|We walked the sand dunes of Sandbanks - who would know these vast dunes exist in southern Ontario? See the two figures in the distance?|
A very busy summer and looking forward to my annual fall vacation before another busy fall!
|After the torrential rains and vicious storms - a reward!|
Oh I almost forgot, I will have a couple of pieces on display next weekend in Almonte at FibreFest - with my fibre arts group, Out of the Box. I also have a piece at The Running Stitch Quilt show in Kanata on October 3 and 4. And of course don't forget Fibrations Sept 9-16 at the Art Gallery of Burlington.
