Going in Circles

Sunday, January 10th, 2010

You didn’t think that I would make irrigation circles that look like the real thing, did you? I spent most of the afternoon, fusing silk fabrics to start a smaller version of the irrigation circles. I made two copies. This one is about 18″ X 21″.  I am having lots of fun with this.

However, while I was pulling out silk fabrics, I found a discharged piece of silk that is just yelling at me. I put it on the design wall and I keep looking for fabrics to work with it. So I feel pulled in two directions. Can I make two pieces at the same time? Oh, and don’t worry, I don’t think that lime green is working, either.

I haven’t posted a photo of Scooter lately, so here he is, doing what comes naturally, sleeping. His winter coat is at least and inch and half long, now. He looks like a little tub of lard!
