catching up in the studio

In between sorting and pitching and trying to reorganize my work space, I have seen my way back to work. Still working very small, but still working.

meadow fragment 12.5 x 9"

spill 9.25 x 25"
a dark little piece. I played with texturing the surface in a number of ways including free form pintucking.
The hanging device is cotonwood root.

the ring code is up and i got my old template back. thanks for the help.

lost in bloggerland

all i tried to do was upgrade. in the process i have lost all sorts of things and can't find the answers to my questions.
what did blogger do with my old template
where is the ring code
how do i go back

any and all help will be most appreciated!

On another note, the studio clear out is stalled. Lots of things went away and i could see my way back to work. I will get back to the clearing out (eventually) and deal with books and magazines. Meanwhile i am happily working on small pieces, my next writing adventure and preparing for a teaching trip.

it helps that the days are getting longer. it is still light at 5:15 now.

Studio Sale, phase 1

there's no room in the studio!
shelves are crammed, surfaces overflowing, work space is minimal.
As far as i know, there are limited ways to get additional space: take over MORE of the house, move to a larger space or get rid of excess. I've already exercised the first option, the second is not likely any time soon, so i am resigned to the third choice.

To that end, I am clearing out my fabric stash. [books and maazines are next.]

It's a studio sale: here's what i have packed up so far:

6 boxes assorted fabrics. [mostly Bali or Hoffman Batiks, some interesting prints]. There's a wide variety in color, value and mood. Beyond the fact that i bought it all, I can make no guarantees as to what is in each box. $90 (OBO) each includes shipping

all fabrics are pre-washed
there are no solids
most of the "cuts" are 1/3 yard, some pieces larger, some smaller

there's also:
1 box with batiks but mostly novelty prints
1 box of scrappy scraps and
1 box of "tidy"scraps.
$75 (OBO) each includes shipping

The boxes are the USPO fixed rate priority boxes, each holds approximately 4.5+ pounds of fabric.
As an added bonus, each box will also include a smallish (postcard size or larger) " lc-w quilted fragment".

email me at and we'll take it from there.

back to clearing shelves.
