busy day


Spent most of the day printing yellow scarves and am slowly working my way through the pile.  I have discovered that many of my screens have finally called it quits after years of use, so I am having to make new ones to finish this job.

Didn't come home till almost 7:pm and have spent much of the evening working on my lecture about working in a series.  You might remember that over the past couple of years we had several interesting discussions on the subject here and a number of you were kind enough to send me pictures.  I am finally getting around to using some of them.  A work in progress.

A series can be on a subject, using a particular image, or whatever else you deem your series to comprise.  But now I'm too tired to think much about it.  Tomorrow.

Speaking of series -- I received  pictures today from Barb, who took my class at Quilting in the Desert.
She made three of her screenprinted fabrics into small quilts, which she mounted on stretched canvas. A series, for sure!




Time to retire so I have a clear head for all the stuff I still have to do tomorrow, including making sleeves and finishing quilts as I get ready for my solo show in Chapel Hill in May.  Not enough time in the day!

Hi Cami..... yes, I do have a FB page. You can check it out under Barbara Mars. I'm new to quilting and fabric printing and the series is the 1st I've done using fabric I made in Rayna's class. She's inspiring me on my journey...thanks Rayna.

It was a great class -- first printing, then using the fabric. I was lucky to have a lot of talented students who were willing to experiment!

I often forget that a series can be worked over a long period of time, forgotten for awhile and then circle around to it again. I seem to have several series going on.

I wish I could take one of your classes. Unfortunately I live in Norway. Great series, Barb.
