Feb TIF in progress

Above is the first stage of my February TIF piece. I'm making fabric which will be made into bags later when I have some time. I wanted to tackle it differently this month so I decided to use the blues as the background and then apply small squares made up with the gold/brown/beige fabrics. I was intending to space them out in a regular pattern but now I think I'll apply them more randomly, which will give me more options when I come to make the bag and hopefully look more interesting.

My cards from Susan Lenz arrived today. I think they're both great and it's a fabulous project she has organized.

I'm teaching a workshop on Heat Transfer dyeing this week so have been preparing for that today and I've also been doing some more breakdown printing, the fabrics are curing at the moment. It's hot again this week so I won't be spending as much time in the studio.
By the way Fibre & Stitch Mag, Issue 3 is now out with my article on Shibori techniques with heat transfer dyes (as well as lots of other great articles) It looks like a very good issue.

I do like this TIF fabric, especially when you look at the close up - really nice textures.
