Holy Cow!

I can't believe that it has been almost a month since I posted!
It must be true that the older you get, the faster time flies. It sure seems true to me.

What have I been doing in all that time?
I'll see if I can round up a few photos to show you.

I scanned one of the doilies that I made years ago and converted it into an image that is suitable for a thermofax screen.

The doily was too large for the scanner bed
so i had to seam it in PSE.

What a beautiful screen! I'll try to remember
to post photos of fabric that I screened with this.

I've been drawing some.

Okay, drawing a lot.
When I am relegated to the couch (with an ice pack) (back/hip issues), I tend to draw or hand stitch.
Or read.

Here's a few of the drawings.
I made most of them into thermofax screens for my personal use. I need to put them into my Etsy shop but haven't had the mojo to do it.
If you see something you like and want a screen, email me about it.

I love these shapes.
They look so sensual to me.

This is an abstraction of a shadow that I saw on my wall one night.
I loved the shape and quickly sketched it out at about 3am.
I went back a few days later and tweaked it a little.

That poppy shape keeps creeping back into my drawing.
I love the possibilities of it.

I just realized how out of place this image is with the other ones.
It began life as paint blob and, thanks to PSE, became this
wave type thing.
Or maybe stripes from a tiger.

More to come.
Maybe the color will appear next!

Such interesting shapes. How do you come up with so many ideas?
