euc in the house

I missed a week at ACAD–summer holidays with the Greyman, and some serious Garden Hard time, both necessary things, and also time to think on things. If the school studio is too cool now for my favourite processes, what else can i do?

My favourite eucalyptus in “in season” again–that means it’s an import, as it just doesn’t grow in Alberta! One of the perks of working in the fffFlower Mines means access to things that just aren’t available in my garden or neighbourhood. There *are* certain “go-to’s” i can pick fresh, but the majority of plant materials that give satisfying results are neither “native” nor zone 3 hardy.

Yesterday i stitched in the home studio while these were percolating.

Two euc “trees” 🙂

 

LOVE this silk:

 

It was a good day.

 

 

 

 

FybreSpace re-opening

Or maybe i should say “RE-re-opening”!!!!! I’m tired of fighting with the coding between Paypal and Blogger, so i’ve gone back to BigCartel. Same address as the “old/previous” shop, but a new look, hopefully, enticing new and old customers 🙂

The shop is here, so please bookmark it!!!

 

Blue May Skies

What horizon are you looking at now?Clear, fresh, Spring skies. Available!

 

And now i must get back to stitching, while the vat has a rest.

hurried up and waited, and a shop hint

More results from the chemical (aka regular vat/indigo vat/vat, ’cause i’m tired of explaining the difference…)

 

And it was worth it. The 123 vat IS WORKING. The colour *is* paler, but repeated dips i’m sure, will add depth to the shades. I had expected the greeny-turquoise tone from my first experience with it in a Wada workshop, but am still thrilled. (Though once this vat is used up, i won’t repeat the effort 😉 )

On silk:

On cotton:

And for your delectation and discerning taste, i’m offering small “Boro Strapping Packs” again in the shop. Letting you know too, these are all from the chemical vat (so as not to offend the purists)!

FybreSpace shop update

Fixed the glitches in the buy codes, and have added some few new chunks of fabric!

Shop here please 🙂

 

FybreSpace, the Shop, open for business again

I’m clearing shelves, as i make room for new work, and new fabrics to be created during my upcoming summer residency, so please do head over to the shop. I’ve posted information in the side bar there, about my policies and shipping info. If you have ANY problems, PLEASE let me know as soon as possible, so i can fix them 🙂

As i dig out fabrics, they will be listed. It takes time to photograph, do all the photo and writing editing, and generate the code for the post, so please be patient with me. At the moment there are “story fabrics” with deliberate design in mind, but some ecoprints will be added as i find them!
