What day is it again?

One of the consequences of having husband and daughter both done with school and home all day during the summer is that every day feels like Saturday.  I lose track of what day it is, and I am even more scattered than usual, darting between household business and real work and family and sewing and art projects and just enjoying summertime.

But yes, there has been a bit of activity in my little studio -- I'm having a good time moving forward on several different projects.  Remember that painted fabric I showed you recently?  I've done some things with it and I'm now involved in quilting it which is a lot of fun. 

And then I've been experimenting with something and I have no idea where this is going to end up:

This fabric has been hand-dyed, fused, discharged, paintstikked, masked, and painted.  And I'm not sure what's next. 

But I'm having fun.  I hope you are too!


  1. The sewing machine adds so much to surface texture--such depth in your work. I just found your enjoyable blog and will stop by again.
    best, nadia

  2. PS: And I had thought about the same name for my blog. Now I know who got there first!

  3. I always love your explorations in surface design - They make me want to lock myself in my sewing room and play.

  4. Experimenting is a load of fun - you never know quite where you will end up. It's always a surprise and I love surprises. Can't wait to see how these two pieces end up. :D
