Big DYE week

I shiboried, soy wax resisted and printed dye through screens using print paste and thickened dyes, yesterday with the companionship of my friend Susan Willen. Today I'm over-dyeing pieces that need a pick-me-up. My hands are covered with hints of color though of course I wore gloves. I wear the that color with pride, sort of a badge of my profession though not a clip on style! Can't wait to see how these new fabrics work their way into my artwork.

Etesian at home

This is a photo sent to me by the gentleman who purchased this quilt within the week it was completed. He's found the perfect spot for it in the master bedroom. He promises that he will be putting the linens on the dresser away any day now . . .

Collage in Progress

I was out of town last week in Florida for the Art Cloth Network's annual meeting and am now happily back in the studio. This piece, as yet unnamed, is developing well: paper and fabric and MANY interesting oddments. I have bent, yes, bent, about a dozen needles working on it as some of the paper is VERY metallic and thick. I'm now using a three inch needle and a giant thimble! Oh the challenges of art!!! It is a foggy day so my pix required a flash even though they were taken outdoors so the metallic appears a bit more reflective than is ideal. Looking for sunshine tomorrow.
