A Thunder Snow Storm?

I think it is almost June but I'm not really sure. I don't think Mother Nature is sure either. Saturday night Kara asked me if we should bring the vegetable plants in because it was snowing. Not too long after bringing the plants in (glad I hadn't planted them yet!), there was a big flash of lightening and the boom of thunder and it was still snowing. Before I went to bed, I took a picture of my car with the snow on it.

Haven't had a lot of time to work on much. I did take an old piece of styrofoam insulation and make a design wall and  2 printing surfaces. I also took an old sheer curtain and make a screen for screen printing. I've wanted to try screen printing for a while and the class with Elizabeth Barton pushed me to try it. This was my first attempt at screen printing with thickened dye. I cut a stencil from copy paper to use. This piece isn't great but I can see lots of potential. This could be addictive.
On the bottom right side, when I was finished, I took the paper off the screen and layed it the fabric to get a print. This was something I saw Kerr Grabowski do on her Quilting Arts dvd.

I do have a few other things to show. I just have to take pictures. We  now have to get ready for Alex's high school graduation. Then graduations should be over with for a couple of years. Have a lot of cleaning to do which is hard since I'd much rather be playing with fabric, paint and dye and stuff.
