I started working on this yesterday, and I’m completely hooked. I think it is because I’ve been doing way too much computer work, and I needed to do something by hand, something tactile and fluid. Something where my brain could mellow and the work would take me where it wanted to go.
This started out as white fabric that was partially transformed in a soy wax batik class with fellow FAO member Janet Lasher (see previous post). Here’s what it looked like after that class, but before the wax was removed and before it was washed:
Here are some more shots of what it looks like now. I’m embroidering it with lots of different kinds of floss and thread, and couching down bits of thready fluff that came off fabric yardage after I washed it.
ooooh, this is highly addictive.
