I am part of a group of women who have gotten together in the past to create a wide variety of items for different purposes.
This year we are working on altered bras. Since the title of this project is "NO TWO ARE ALIKE" we each are making one cup(actually we are encouraged to make many different one cups). We meet about once a month and spend about 2 hours creating, eating, and drinking some wine. It varies on how many women will show up for our creative sessions, everyone is encouraged to work on their own on this project. It will be on display at the Stuart Opera House in Nelsonville, Ohio during the Final Friday(art walk) of Sept. and will be up until right before Final Friday of Oct. There is also going to be a dance performance to go with the bra display, the title of that is BUSTING OUT and it will be performed by women over 40. Should be a fun time for all. The dance will be held on Oct.6-7, I won't be able to see it since I have a neice getting married in Cleveland that weekend.

Anyway the 3 pictures are of a "bra cup" I made the other day. I took a metal slicer part of some machine I found at the thrift and hot glued lots of colorful pompoms on it. It turned out to be looking like a big gum drop. I still need to add a contecting piece to it. Actually I plan on making another one and connecting the two together, whether they will stay together is anyones guess. The second one will not look the same since I don't have anymore of several of the pompoms.

Any woman out there that would like to take part in this is more than welcome. The final cups have to be in by the first of Sept. so we can match them up. You can alter existing bras or make do with found objects.

Sorry, I have been slacking with writing in my art journal. Haven't really finished any art lately. The weather has called me outside and I have been very busy with trying to get my property looking good. This year for the first time since my kids left home I have a young man coming out to help me for a few hours each week. Amazing what the 2 of us can get accomplished. He ahs been out 4 times now and we have taken old fence down, cut I don't know how many trees, samplings, and multiflora rose down, and moved RR ties. Next week he will be bringing a buddy with him and they will take down a shed that is about to fall down anyway. Hopefully by the end of summer we will have this place in shape. Pictures will have to come later, when everything is in bloom. Right now I am waiting for the sun to come up so I can get a flat planted before having to be at work. Yesterday I got several perenials planted before work. The birds are all chirping now so it won't be long. Need to get dressed and out on the porch to watch the sun come up.
Until later.

About Me

Name: Attack of the Vintage
About Me: Hi! I am a fiber artist tryig to work on my art everyday of 2007. With doing this I hope my art will evolve and I will learn many new techniques this coming year. My goal is to be able to make my living doing my fiber arts. I also make my own earrings when I have a need of a new pair. I am an avid brick collector and belong to International Brick Collectors Association. I try to attend at least one brick swap a year to share my bricks and to collect new ones from all over the country. I am currently working on a hugh brick walk and patio. Gardening is another love of mine, my yard is getting rather funky in my yard decorating. I go for the unusaul and people come out my way to see what I have added each year. Last summer was green beer bottles for the flower bed edging and bowling ball towers. I have no idea what I will be adding this coming summer.
