Yesterday afternoon I sat down to work…and came up with nothing! I had ideas for projects, but no ‘oomph’ in my spirit….so I dyed a couple of silks carves, ironed and heat-set some fabric I had printed upon, but I started nothing. Oh, I take that back. I did take a silk shawl I had previously dyed and tried to paint on it. It didn’t work. I used a couple of stencils, and tried using silk dye (but this ran all over the scarf) and then I tried textile paint but that also bled…..so I put it in another color dye and will see what that looksl ike tomorrow.
I also looked through some books and patterns, but what I was really reluctant to do was cut out pieces….That is the part of sewing/quilting that I really dislike. So I started small today, and am making some gifts for Christmas.
So tonight I will finish a second one and then get around to printing on more fabric…I am not sure what my strengths are/is right now, but I am trying to just ‘go with the flow’. What do other do when this happens?
