Studio Happenings

After a couple of hours of hand quilting my eyes require a break and my mind needs something that is not controlled as hand quilting.  I just had to let go with...
walnut ink and dye-na-flow

I fused the back with misty fuse...
and was digging the lacy pattern it made.

I fused it to a black piece of fabric to give it more body and cut it out.
it is 19" wide.  Before I left I pulled some background fabrics to audition on  Thursday.

Then from the big boat of humanity, I jumped to writing on fabric.
This pen was so much more vibrant than the Jacquard fabric marker. This pen was purchased from Borders many, many years ago and it is not labeled so when its gone, its gone.

then I used various inks to color over the writing after cutting out the small boats of humanity, followed by fusing them to this orange cloth.

I'm trusting the process that it all will come together.  How did your day go?
