I finished quilting the background for last years weekly leaves, trimmed it and the binding is on. Today I set about trying to line up all the squares onto the background. My table in StudioB is exactly 48" wide so I had a flat surface to work on. I got up on my step stool halfway thru to take this picture.
I marked the spacing on a 48" ruler to help me line them up, you can tell that the ones on the left are a bit off. Here it is from another angle.
They are all pinned in place, and I've moved them back into Studio A to hand sew them down.
A couple of weeks ago I talked about the month of mono prints that I had done several years ago, and it got me thinking that I should do something like that again. I have an 8" round gelli plate and I do like working in black and white, so I am doing a print a day for this month. I've started out with black paint on white fabric, but I may do some white on black also. Here are the first two.
I have no plans yet for the group, but will probably cut them into quarters and see what happens.
The Weekly Leaf
We will be having a soy wax play day here on Friday, so to get warmed up this weeks leaf was done with soy wax. I have a large leaf shaped tjap that I used to stamp the melted wax onto a square of light green hand dyed fabric.
Then the fabric was over dyed with a darker green. The wax was then removed with very hot water.
Week #9,year 2
After lots of french knots (what was I thinking?).
Daily Stitching updates.
Silk Fragments #55-#61
The Daily Paper #348-#354
I haven't done my assignment for the sketching and watercolor class yet. This week we are doing a shoe. I went upstairs earlier this afternoon to get the shoe I was going to do and obviously got side tracked and did something else because I just now realize that I never brought the shoe downstairs and I never did the assignment.
