months time with two friends of mine, and the working title we have at the moment is "Journey". I spent all week exploring ideas and discarding most of them. I liked the small quilt I made at the top of this post and it survived the discard heap. I am using Procion dyes which are new to me, in fact the whole process of dyeing fabric is new to me and I love seeing what happens to the fabric and how the colour runs. In another life I was a potter and loved to open the kiln to see how the glazes had worked, the surprises, the disapointments. Somehow dyeing fabric brings back the same rush, the same thrill. At least with fabric you get the chance to overdye if it does not work, in pottery it hits the bin and becomes shards. Today I got up early, trying to beat the heat, which becomes insufferable in Brisbane this time of year. I decided to over paint some fabric I had purchased earlier in the week, when another idea seemed really good till I binned it yesterday. When it dries I have the beginnings of a sky and another abstract landscape.
