I'm happy with the result and extremely glad to have it finished. Even the doodles came out pretty well. The photo was taken in my back patio; no need to go into Houston for the professional photography since this was a commission and won't be entered in anything.
Those woolens have resided in the back of my mind (and in a stash closet) for years now, accompanied by a fair-sized lump of Procrastinator's Guilt. So now that is lifted and I can get on to other things.
We're driving up to Abilene TX to see the SAQA exhibit at the Center for Contemporary Arts. My "Turmeric & Wine" is there; apparently it generated some discussion at the opening (which I couldn't attend). So I'm eager to see the exhibit, "Today's Quilts: Art in Stitch" in place and to meet Gay Young, the curator.
Earlier this week I mixed up an indigo dye pot to alter some remnants of an old quilt and some damask pieces that I plan to use on a new project. This is the first time I've made the dye myself, but it's a kit and fairly idiot-proof. The color turned out well. The next day some local friends came over with cloth of their own to experience the indigo magic, and we had a great time tying, using resists, etc.
This is mostly the quilt pieces drying. The second day photos aren't in my file!
So now I'm noodling design ideas, eager to get to work. BUT FIRST I need to put away a bunch of stuff in the studio.
