This beautiful work is by Cathy Franks.
She started with black fabric, wrapped it around
a rope and tightly bound the edges with string.
Discharged in bleach than over dyed.
This is another piece by Cathy.
Discharged than over dyed and thread stitched.
I loved the photos of the grain leg and elevator on
this rust dyed fabric. Nicely done.
This was hanging in Cathy's living room.
I really like how she just hangs spectacular
pieces of cloth from rods.
The beauty of the piece stands for itself.
I bought some string and will look for a
thick piece of rope. I want to try my hand
at this method. I loved the effect.

I finished the week off with a SAQA Indiana group
meeting at Cathy Franks house. Lovely wooded setting
for a really nice house and studio.
We shared some techniques, ate lunch and
Cathy showed us her studio.
I have a feeling she busted her ---- cleaning everything.
Cathy is a very talented artist.
I will show you some of her pieces tomorrow.
Thanks to Linda Eller for driving me to Indianapolis,
I really enjoyed the meeting
Cathy like all of us fiber artist has a nice collection of
fabric, books and threads.
I could just visit for a week and read through her bookshelves.
So organized and neat, my things are spread all over
my house. Maybe some day I will be neat.
