I am a dyer, loving every aspect of low water immersion hands-on fabric dyeing and dye painting of silk, cotton, rayon, linen. So I enjoy seeing what’s happening out there.
This is an interesting site that has twelve photos of the new fashions. The photos shown are of tie dye fabrics. It’s hard to get past the bone-thin models who appear close to death, but try. What do you think?

This You Tube video was presented by employees at the Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Portland, Oregon, for breast cancer awareness.
The daughter-in-law of Caryl Hancock, who is a quilt artist friend, Emily MacInnes Somers, created, directed and choreographed this last week for her Medline glove division as a fundraiser for breast cancer awareness.
Medline wanted to promote their new pink gloves; the idea came about, and many employees wanted to participate including doctors and patients, all having fun doing it.
When the video got to one million hits, Medline was to make a huge contribution to the hospital, as well as offering free mammograms for the community. When I checked the You Tube video today, they have more than four million hits already!

The creativity of the quilt artists amazes me!

We are going to the Jasper-Pulaski Wildlife Refuge in northwest Indiana later this week to see the thousands of sandhill cranes on their migration through the area. As they continue their southern migration, many fly right over our place.
They constantly chatter back and forth, so they are noisy. We always know when they are overhead. They fly very high and look small because of the altitude at which they fly, but the chatter alerts us to their flight.
This is a You Tube video of the migration taken at dusk on November 28, 2009 at Jasper-Pulaski. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGMQDBupn-Q
The sandhills come in from all directions to rest for the night. The crane count was approximately 22,000. A nature spectacle that is well worth experiencing, I’ve been told.
The migration is one of Indiana’s greatest wildlife spectacles at Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area. Each fall, tens of thousands of sandhill cranes visit Jasper-Pulaski’s marshes. Two observation towers provide great viewing points to see thousands of sandhill cranes in fall migration.
