remember yesterday's salad bowl?

Me, too. It now has a new owner. My daughter Jessica made the trek from Brooklyn to visit her Nana. Afterwards, she came back to the house and spotted the bowl. It was so whimsical that it made me think she should have it, so I gave it to her. It just suited her, so I'm happy.

Now on to other business. Grace asked how to use a laser printer to cut a Thermofax stencil. Uh- it's not that simple. First, you need a Thermofax Assuming you have one, or access to one, you need special Thermofax screen, available only from Welsh Products in California. I was going to show you how I make my screens, but I left them all in the studio and forgot to take pictures. We are expecting snow tonight into tomorrow, so I guess this will have to wait till later in the week. Oops.

Shall I go onto another topic or just forget it and go watch the Oscars? Maybe. I DID take pictures of my steaming process the other night while I was steaming a bunch of things I had printed with thickened dyes. But I think I'll save that till tomorrow, too. I shall, instead, either go bake cookies, use my new sewing machine, or read a smarmy novel. Come back tomorrow night; I will probably be here.

snowing here in NJ, too. I baked cookies, sewed a facing on a quilt, and am listening to madrigals on WNYC. Perfect accompaniment to snow.

If it helps any, Gerrie did a good how to on thermofaxes last year:

But for me the questions is.. where does one find access to a thermofax machine (if one doesn't wish to own a machine?)

Debra - stay tuned. And everybody else - if Gerrie did a good job, I guess I don't need to reinvent the wheel. Follow Debra's link.
