Some Refreshment at Zephyr Point, Lake Tahoe

Tahoe Art 09 383Tahoe Art 09 384Tahoe Art 09 399Tahoe Art 09 230 These are some early morning shots from a walk at the Zephyr Point Conference Center where we will stay. Even the “Dixie” rolls on by early morning and again in the evening as it goes to Emerald Bay. It is so beautiful and relaxing to be at Zephyr Point. There is NO other place around the Lake Tahoe quite like it. And with that said, I will segue into a cool announcement: The Artistic Alchemists, a group of four of us Quilting/Fiber artists will have a retreat here at Zephyr Point Conference Center, Tuesday-Friday, September 2nd-5th, 2014, and would love to have you join us! More information to follow very soon. 560562564 This is the coolest vest. I love it! Using Christine Barnes Collage Vest pattern (check it out at her Website: ChristineBarnes.com). I wove left over Kaffe Stripes (from another project) and mixed in a couple beautiful batiks. I did some “cardiac” stitching mixed in with other long back and forth quilting. The last thing was to couch some of my favorite yarn here and there. 566567 This vest while an older classic style, held much promise for felting my own hand dyed cotton yarn, and couching down rayon “rattail”. These are but a few of the possible techniques I will show my students at the first ever, Artistic Alchemists’ retreat at Lake Tahoe.
Have a great rest of the week, I’ll bring back much to share about Tahoe and what I have created while up there.
Hugs, Heidi
