A lot can happen in a Wednesday and it isn’t over yet

So excited about the little shed out back. Peter installed the windows today! It is really almost finished.

I have been burning screens and pulling proofs most of today ARGH! You would think after 40 years I would have it down. 40 years ago we used lacquer stencils  and pressed them down with stacks of encyclopedias (sp?) in the basement. Oh the fumes! It’s a wonder I can think at all never mind spell correctly. Photo emulsion still seems like a new invention to me. It’s the end of the day and my studio is a mess. I don’t think I’m ready for my spread in Where Women Create just yet. Oh well.

After dinner I will clean up a bit and get back to work on this mini-quilt. That’s my plan anyway. Let’s see what happens I may end up at home depot to get some more 2 x 4’s.

    Beautiful quilt

    I am so impressed that you burn your large screens yourself! I work with screens that can do a yard of 55″ fabric at a time and have to have a company burn them for me. I don’t have the equipment (or probably the skill!) to do it. Props to you!

    Beautiful! Penny described it perfectly. Color me green, I’d love a shed.

      Thanks Curls! You have got me thinking about a flowering quince in my garden- I might try to dye with it. It has some lovely coral colored flowers.What would you use for a mordant? And do you soak the fabric in it first or add it to the dye pot?

      • Curls & Q says:

        Yum, quince! I’d actually try small squares of fabric soaked in different mordants. You’ll have a “visual library” of how the dye works with the different mordants. Soak the fabric first. Oh, anxious to see the results!

    You are amazing!!! Love the mini-quilt!!!!

  5. Windows!!! and I love your patchwork of colors! The top left, like a moon through the thick mangrove forest in the Everglades. Not sure why that, but very intriguing.

Love to hear from you!
