I hope everyone was able to enjoy some time to themselves over the holidays! Since I was at our Interweave headquarters just before the break, I went skiing in Colorado for a couple of days. (This was to make The Husband happy.)
Then when we came home to Massachusetts, I played in my studio for five glorious days. (This was to keep ME happy!)
Inspired by Screen Printing: Layering Textiles with Colour, Texture & Imagery, I played with deconstructed screen printing, printing with glue, flour paste, and freezer paper resists; fiddled with soy wax batik; and wearing proper protective gear, did a little bleach discharge.
(freezer paper resist)
I stamped, foiled, stenciled, you name it, and now I have a little fat stash of about 10 yards of colorful fabric to prove it.
I even started a small quilted project (detail below) using some of these fabrics for an upcoming Quilting Arts article...
To ring in the new year, I'd love to give some of this fabric away.
And just in case you prefer commercial fabrics, I'll throw in a very fat stash of dee-lish Moda Fabrics!
All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me what your ARTful resolution is for the new year. I will leave the responses open through this Friday (January 8) at 4:00 EST, then randomly select a winner and post the winning name on my blog.
In the meantime, I'd also like to share with you that Bernina has a new website they've launched called We All Sew. If you are wanting to sew or quilt some projects as part of your New Year's artful resolution, check out their Sew To Serve section.
Happy New Year!
