New Old Stuff

studio window sill and a small assemblage made with found objects
I got out my Procion dye now that the studio is warm enough (barely) to cure it, and I had to have more organza for my wearable art Dragon Gown.  Wonderful to be back pouring pure colors over white cloth again!  Really, really wonderful.
I found a small (12"x18" or so) cloth I had started as a sample in the class I taught last spring and added to it with thickened black dye using my stamps.  The next day I threw it in a container and poured dye and soda ash on it.  I can't wait to get back and rinse it out.
There was time to contemplate the window sill, and think in the studio sketchbook which lead to drawing which lead to cutting a few new stamps.
This week some major stuff is going to be different suddenly.  The Sailor is shipping out.  An old friend is coming back for a visit. There is disturbing news from Other Parts of the World.  I need to stay here, now, not living out there in the future or slogging away in the past.
Art will be my Savior.


  1. Wow your art is pretty cool. All the craft items remind me of when I was little and visiting my grandmother. ^^

  2. I love the stamps Sus!
    I didn't realize that you teach too, How cool is that?
    Yes, art will be your savior for sure, Hang in there.

  3. YOur stamps are the best! What's going on in the rest of the world? If it doesn't show up on FB then I don't know about it. Have a great week, see you Thursday!

  4. Your sailor man is leaving so soon! I love that your Pyrex measuring cup has buttons, bones, and feathers in it. I hope everything works itself out for you and yours. Art has saved me many times.

  5. Lots going on there Sus! I like the idea of art as a savior--that it is :-) I bought stamp carving supplies last week, maybe I will get to it tonight.


I love to hear from you - please leave me a note.
