In the Works

Oh, I have so many things in the works and I am pulled in all sorts of directions.  How I am longing for a week -- even one entire day! -- with nothing to do but play with fabric.  Perhaps I can squeeze it into the schedule this weekend.  Meanwhile, here's one of the projects I am excited about.

I made this fabric by drawing the lines with a tjanting tool and acrylic paint, then added color with diluted acrylic paint.  I tell you, just the drawing process is meditative and mesmerizing.


Then these fellows were added with a stencil...


So I am eager to keep going but real work and family matters distract me.  Darn.  You'll have to tune back in to see where this goes.

That doodling is very unique! I really love it. Can't wait to see how this evolves.

Your fabric seems to tell such a beautiful story, of the birds flying over the town covered by a rainbow.
