Per your suggestion, I went to work yesterday afternoon to take the sweetness out of the fabric on Monday's blog. I waxed and dyed my little heart out: you can see the before and after, below, plus detail. Much better. I also went back into the one with the spirals. It is better, but still pale - but I am not sure whether I will go back into it, do something with it as is, or cut it up and sell off bits of it. Finally, the piece I am really happy with!! I started with a blecchy pale wisteria green and red blotches I dyed last week. u-g-l-y. This one cheers me up immeasurably. I started out trying to be orderly (notice the ovals, which are in some sort of order. But then I was so bored I couldn't stand it, so the result is what you see. It makes me smile. Another thing that made me smile today was the class I gave in Jump-Starting the Art Quilt. I am constantly amazed at the creativity of people who come to class telling me they are not creative. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures because I ran out WITH camera but WITHOUT smart card, which was still in my little card reader. Not so smart. But one of the people in the class promised to send me jpgs that she took with her camera. For the next two days I plan to be in my studio. Let's see if the plan works. I think I am ready to start something new on my design wall.
