This week I went off to an open studio week end at the Schweinfurth. I worked in the wet studio with six other gals. The first image is of the screen work I did on Sat. I stared out doing Shobori with Liz. We did four colors- orange, yellow, green and purple. Everything worked well except the purple where I used a fabric that was only partly cotton and so it did not take the dye as well as I would have liked. I still have a lot of fabric that is batching so there will be more next week. Susan did some wonderful stuff as did Cheri. Maureen worked on sox and other linens she hopes to sell at the Plow Shears show in early Dec. Victoria did some nice work too. We all had fun and I came home exhausted.
Zap I had to remove the first applique as it caused a lot of ripples. In doing the second two panels, I will add the inner facing and tear away before I stitch to begin with- that will make the piece flatter and go a bit faster too.
Enjoy Big Bird Day everyone,
