October 2020

 The October 2020 TAGY meeting was held on Monday, Oct 5th at the "By Western Hands" building in Cody.  After a summer of Covid caused small meetings in parks, we were finally able to meet indoors and have a program.  Ginger and Karling did a wonderful job of providing a hands-on program based on the Color Wheel.  They provided us each with fabric packets to play with and from which to learn.

After the program, Ginger gave us a tour of the "By Western Hands" gallery, which included an informative video about western furnishings. NW College has a craftsmanship degree and uses this space as a classroom.

Show and Tell was amazing as usual.

Petroglyph pillow sham
Our TAGY group is not able to meet again this month, but we still continue to be creative and make beautiful art.  Thank you to those who have shared their creations below.

Marie Shirley-Jones
This is an old pillow sham that I did all sorts of things to and then I added rusted fabric to make the bird-headed person petroglyph.

Pam Harris
I was asked by the Anchorage art quilt group, Calendar Girls, to submit a quilt for their yearly challenge and calendar. Their theme: Go Crazy. Theme was chosen last fall long before the world went crazy.

All the fabrics are dyed, painted, stamped, stenciled and/or silk-screened. Most of the embellishments are from garage sales.

Pam joined an online Fabric Postcard group that has monthly challenges. For May (1920’s) I chose Art Deco and decided to do the Cody Theater sign. Theater was not built til the 30’s but utilized a style from the 20’s.

June Postcard challenge 1930’s
Pam researched new words of the 30’s and thought spam would be a fun subject. No one really says what exactly what the acronym stands for but the favored is SPiced  hAM.

Sue Beardsley
Seems like I’m making a small dent in the projects in my stash.  I’ve completed a few projects this month:

zippered pouch - top purple one was a class then made the remaining for gifts;

Bench pillow covers for my mother-in-law

Jacquelynne Steves Silver Linings Quilt along - 1st 3 blocks;

refinishing furniture for my daughters first apartment!

Here are 3 photos of what I have been up to.
I've been without a machine for 3 weeks so I have been painting.

2 tiles with alcohol ink.

The bird is some Jacquard paint on organza.

Garden Path
15 x 17"  Garden Path was juried into a show at SAGE Art Gallery in Sheridan!  The show dates are June 16 - July 25.

7 x 7" digital print on fabric was a photograph by John Niehay, used with permission.  I am working on a companion piece with the female bluebird.

Linda MacDonald
I have been doing mostly yard work and genealogy lately, but have also started two Veterans lap quilts.

Have a great summer. Hopefully we can meet again soon for our regular monthly TAGY meeting. Miss you all!
