Everything's in Process
My studio is a mess. I have stuff all over the place.I get stuck on something and then begin another. I'm still waiting for the black batik to arrive so I can square off these rectangular blocks and assemble this quilt.
So then I begin something new. This red batik was one I didn't use in the batik quilt, but I love it. And wouldn't you know I have a long black zipper. So a duffel bag is in this works. I'm about to start the zipper and always take a deep breath at this point.
Jinny Beyer's 150 color spectrum and assembled those. I left my feet in the picture so you can get idea of the length of these strips. I can't decide what I want to do with these strips - incorporate them into a jacket? make a couple of totes? a wall hanging for the one bit of empty study wall space? And if these do become a wall hanging, dare I try putting them on a light background rather than a black?
Meanwhile I'm trying to get all my batiks back into the cabinets. And each piece I touch makes me want to combine it with another and make something.
I'm lucky to have all this space so I can work on multiple projects. And you should see what I didn't take pictures of!
