Wild Animal Saturday!

Yesterday, I had such an enjoyable time with two moms and their daughters creating a pack of wrapped wire animals!

Here they are...

Ava's chipmunk with acorn.
Aiyana's elephant
Jennifer's giraffe
Adelaide's horse
My book (Fabric Printing at Home) is moving along. Thanks to those of you who have given me supportive and wise words. It feels strange not sharing studio work here with you...but just know that the time is going to a good purpose!

This week I've been playing with some recycled paper products for one of the chapters in my upcoming book, Fabric Printing at Home.

I kept happening upon words while cutting, twisting, rolling and gluing pages from the L.L. Bean catalog. Words such as, warmth and quilted. It reminds me of the poetry magnets I used to have on the refrigerator. Can you see  pockets in this photo? Kind of interesting since all the folds remind me of pockets!

I test printed some of the blocks today. I still need to cut some stencils and then it's on to some final fabrics for this part of the chapter. So much to do. My new sankalpa is, stay calm and focused.
