Beginnings

Beginnings, how I love them.  I am one to continually try new things.  I love and admire others who do the same.  In part because it's my temperament and also because I think it is daring and youthful.  I have work that I love to do and will always do it; drawing, sewing, new to me this year - painting, collage, experimenting with materials.  And with bated breath I like trying new things.  I have wanted to create yardage for some time now.  I have dabbled with Spoonflower, the online site that helps you make digitally printed cloth.  But I tend to need my work to be closer to the handmade.  We make t-shirts with silkscreens, but I wanted to get one step closer to printing cloth.  When I taught 2D Design many moons ago, I had a student who brought me back a wood block stamp from Saudi Arabia, so beautiful.  Since then, this has been in my mind for me to tackle.  My goal is to turn these into something special, I have a particular purse/bag I am going to try and make out of this.  Hopefully I will have some success and they will be available this Fall.  To Beginnings...
