After several weeks at the bench I am now happy with my collection of fabrics. Some are beautiful in their own right and some will be beautiful when cut into strips. The majority of the 18 square metres of fabric will be used to make ‘Still’ pieces but I’ve included some darker fabrics to get me thinking more about ‘Storm’ pieces. I love pinning them to my design board – so much more fulfilling than having a neatly stacked pile!
Doubtless I will discover that I am missing a vital combination of colour and line. But for now I have finished with ‘wet’ process. So I have given the studio a really good clean (including cleaning windows!) – why do I like cleaning my studio more than my house? For that matter why do I love ironing my printed fabrics but hate ironing clothes? I suspect some of you know the answer!
