I've temporarily stopped sewing strips of colors that remind me of Cape Town because I need to shift gears for a few days. Here are some of the colors I am using, along with others, of course. Color inspiration is everywhere if you keep your eyes open.
On another subject... If you happened to see my Facebook post or looked at email@example.com, you have already seen this piece of fabric, which I found while going through a pile of STUFF, looking for something else. What you didn't see was the other side of the fabric.
This is the back of that piece. I printed the front as a demo using a torn paper resist on day 1 of a surface design class.
Since demo pieces are not meant to be masterpieces (although, believe it or not, sometimes they are), I turned it over for the demo on day 2, using a glue resist. Because the fabric already had a layer of paint on side 1, the yellow and blue and white paint I had used, came through the resist areas. Accident. Serendipity. Whatever you want to call it -- it was unplanned and came out amazingly well. Just saying.
My final task of the day was to make some ugly blocks to take to class this week. I didn't have any here in Florida, although I have plenty at home. So I scrounged around for some not-so-pretty fabric and made a few. My stash of ugly fabric here in the apartment is limited, to say the least. I brought only lovely fabric with me (a carload), but managed to eke out 3 nine-patches for demos. I'm posting them here because next week, I may have some beauties in their place. Or not.
Just set the clocks ahead and am finally tired enough to call it a night. Presumably, more tomorrow or the next day.
