April bag fabric
A funny thing: after complaining about not liking this month's colours, I'm actually working with them for my Innovative Stitches exhibition pieces, which may be why I'm finding it very difficult to get into a good work mode. I'm doing a dyed and printed length of fabric for my main piece so it will fit in with my goals for this year. I've dyed the fabric, designed the print, carved some lino blocks and made some stencils for silkscreening, so it is underway, but it's taken a long time. It's inspired by fragments of bobbin lace found in the Batavia ship wreck.
I'm not sure if my second piece will happen as I also have to get my journal finished. As well, I'm doing 4 small pieces for another exhibition which is on around the same time.
Oh well, better get off the computer and back to work!
