Design Wall

All in a day's work. Ok, I'm good to go now. My design boards are up and everything is off my worktable. Ready....set....GO!!!

Sunday in the summer...



We are finally having some real summer weather here in the northeast. It's sunny and hot and I am hiding inside in the a/c still in my jammies. I've been trying to organize my new studio space and today I will be finishing my design boards so that I can hang up pieces as I work on them instead of spreading them all over my work surface.

My goal within the next month is to come up with a fiber art project/article that Interweave will want to scoop up! There is no excuse now. I have the space and can focus so before other grown-up responsibilities take over, I'm going to get something done. I've got lots of ideas, just need to bring them to fruition.

Here are a few pics from my new studio. I'm actually trying to hang up some of my finished pieces and will post more pics when the design wall is complete. Happy Sunday!

Off and running.....

I'm having lots of fun now that I've got a little bit going. Once it came to me, I just kept going. Not sure where these collages will end up, but I'm having fun thinking about it! I really like the rust colors on the left but the hot pinks and purples of the silks are fun too! I think I'll go in for some hand embroidery and beading and see where it takes me.

New Studio, New Screens

I'm settled into my new apartment and once again have a room dedicated completely to my art stuff. I finally have that freedom and personal space to work on new ideas and spread my things out without having to clean up for dinner. Yesterday, my friend Claire and I went to www.friendsfabricart.com in Lowell so I could make some long awaited thermofax screens for some new ideas I have and then we had a fabulous lunch and christened the new art room. It definitely needs some improvement for 2 people to work together in this space, but for now, I couldn't be happier with it.

Here are examples of a couple of my new screens applied to fabric. I'm loving this t-shirt!!! Time to get busy......
