Summer is slipping away gently. The weather has been lovely albeit a bit too dry. Work has kept me away from the studio more than I would like but now with the “season” winding down I will have more time. I’m continuing to work on bowls and runners and enjoying it but also have been feeling the need to do something more. I have a few small works that would benefit from matting. This is one 12 x 12 without the mat:
And with a mat added in Photoshop:
While looking for some of my better journal quilts that might be candidates to mat I came across another very old UFO:
I would guess these pieces are 6 years old because I made them based on a couple of fiber postcards that are dated 2006:
These were cute as 4″ x 6″ postcards with seed bead but clearly didn’t make it on a larger scale. At one time they were all part of one composition. I think I used black to sash. Anyway it wasn’t a successful experiment so I put them away and hadn’t seen them for probably 6 years.
Ah, but now they are fodder for experimenting. I can’t wait to slice them up and see what happens. Stay tuned.
