never a dull moment

<--------(see below) I just spent more than an hour on the phone with Dell on Call after my system crashed just as I was preparing to post. Bless their hearts - they uncrashed me over the phone and deleted the spyware that had crawled in here despite my best efforts. Worth the money I pay for a software service contract each year! The toxic smell in the studio is lacquer and while it was less today and the landlords have warned the guy that he will be reported to OSHA, Mona and I worked with the windows open and the fans on -- in 27 degree weather. ------->( above is the pile of fabric I brought to the studio from home, with the intention of ironing it. hahahaha. Instead, I vacuumed the dust and pins off the floor and then shibori'd some fabrics to see if I could add to what was on the design wall. All this green! I don't even like green. Next to pink, it is probably my least favorite color. So what is this about? My neighbor Kaaren Patterson, a wonderful artist who works in mixed media, fell in love with these fabrics and looked at them from her painter/mixed media point of view -- giving me an idea or three. She works on canvas.So much for the studio. I left early today (4:30) and brought my shibori fabrics home to wash. This is on my wall at home and I might take it back with me tomorrow. Or not. In the meantime, as usual, it is too late for me to be up. But at least my computer is fixed and I am happy about that.

I absolutely love these fabrics! Green being one of my favorite colours, I'm tempted to cry out: my kingdom for one of these! (alas I do not even have a kingdom to offer...)Have you ever tried mixing green and pink fabrics? (this is an earnest suggestion, not a joke). May be it would work as in mathematics: minus x minus = plus

Colour is a very personal choice. Nobody will be able to convince you. That's alright.

I love the greens!

Let me help you with that spring cleaning. Put all that green fabric in a box and mail it to me. It is so ugly (:o) - you would never use it. I'll gladly "dispose" of it for you....
