I’ve been reveling in the colours achieved, now that i “know the waters” here 🙂
(All the purples, greens and reds have already gone to a great home.)
I’m working on a new batch of threads, in various weights and plies, as i am running low myself, and would like to offer them again in the shop.
I rejoined a local fibre group, one that while i really enjoyed on an artistic and intellectual level, felt i never personally “fit” in. To hell with that mind set, i am what i am, and if they look at me like i have a third nostril, so be it. If all goes well, i’ll be joining the group show in April (appropriately, themed “to evoke a sense of community, place-making, inclusivity and intention”) with this from 2011 as a starting point:
HA. Or so i thought. This is the ONE piece i can’t find in ANY box of UFO’s, bits, nada, nuttin’ zip, zero, zilch. I *know* i didn’t throw it out during the move because i still see the potential it has–and yes, i really did toss some unfinished pieces in the trash, because i knew i would NEVER finish them, but this decidedly was not one of them.
SO. The deadline for this show is March 31st. Of course it is, because if i could find the above piece, i’d have somehow been working for a show with a further away deadline. You now how it goes 🙂 (That’s called Magical Thinking.) Because i have to start from scratch, i have 50 days to get cracking, and finish. And there’s no guarantee i will get in either, so it could just be an exercise in time management….
This is my base fabric:
This is the sketch i’m working from (OLD and used in many ways since it’s inception in 2014):
These are my colours:
I may switch out the peachy toned one for a duller yellow, a rhubarb root dyed piece.
I know too that the pieces i have of these are not all long enough, so will have to re-invent the wheel maybe to get the effect i need.
It’s also going to be a good while until i can show you the “finally” set up studio–we have to re-drywall, move electrical boxes and lights, paint, and figure out storage configuration, so suffice it to say, i have enough room to work, but have to still move piles, or dig to find things. It’s been a lesson in “clean up as you go, and organize as you store”!
