Too long











Too long since my last post. I have been busy though, with good things. I will photograph more work tomorrow evening, and hopefully post too. The knitting is a wide scarf or narrow shawl for a friend of mine who is incredibly generous, cooking for all and sundry and she is always giving me lovely things. This is a small gift back. I can't buy lots, but I can make her lovely things. It is an easy lace pattern, Old Shale, and the yarn is Domy Heather in a plum shade. Soft and pretty! I am working on samples for classes I teach at work, and this is for a painted fabric class aimed at quilters, primarily. I used Setacolor paints thinned with water and then scrunched and salted. The salt is giving me a tough time coming out though. I am working on a series of landscape pieces, and printing too. I am off to bed after sleeping hardly any last night... the aftermath of a migraine. More tomorrow...

Lucky person to get this beautiful scarf. Love the painted fabric. I use Setacolor paints also and check with you local Micheal's for a clearance on Setacolors. I got the tip from another blogger and got some last week for $1.49 for the small bottle.
