I was at the courthouse today for jury duty but mid-way through the morning we were released. Hurrah!
Bonus day in the studio. I set to work on the piece shown above. These are just strips of commercial cotton of various widths that I sewed side-to-side and then cut at odd angles, sashed randomly in white and set them all against a black background.
Here it is now. Colors muted and blended. Hmmm. I like it but think it needs something more. Still not quilted. What do you think it needs? I would love to learn your thoughts.
Several years ago I received ziplock bag of Shiva Paint sticks that a friend no longer wanted. And like so many things the bag sat around in my studio for a year or so before I got around to trying them.
On Sunday afternoon I pulled out some hand dyed fabric, a couple of plastic templates, and the paint sticks. After a few missteps I figured it out...and of course by then I read the directions!
